It's morning baseball!

After the first two games of this series, you'll be happy to know that today is the last time the Milwaukee Brewers will see the Cincinnati Reds this year.

Matt Garza will take the ball after an extended break from his last start, facing off against impressive rookie Luis Castillo, who comes into the game with a 3.32 ERA, striking out 88 batters in 81.1 innings over 14 starts. The Brewers saw him in his second career start back on June 28th, when he went 5.2 innings and struck out 9 but also walked 3, giving up 2 runs in a game the Brewers would eventually win.

After two straight losses to start the series, Craig Counsell is shaking up the lineup by starting a centerfielder in centerfield.

First pitch is at 11:35 (in the morning!) today.
