Last night's game wasn't a fun result, although it had it's moments in the top of the ninth and the top of the tenth. It was those pesky bottoms of innings that got in the way.
The Brewers (6-6) go with righty Junior Guerra making his first start of the season. Last year's opening day hurler has one start for the AAA Sky Sox this year, going 5.2 innings of two hit ball with a walk, an earned run, and six strikeouts. Last season's line of 61 hits and 43 walks allowed in 70.1 innings isn't horrible, but the 18 homers allowed was. The Cardinals (5-6) counter with veteran Adam Wainright, who began the season on the DL and has one start, allowing four hits, four walks, and three earned runs in an April 5th loss to the D'Backs.
With Brett Phillips optioned back to the minors, and Lorenzo Cain and Manny Pina likely unavailable due to minor injuries, the Brewers have Eric Sogard and Jesus Aguilar as the only available bench bats. JSO's Tom Haudricourt reports that Pina is still sore with calf tightness but expects to be ready for Friday's first game of the Mets' series in New York.
