The Brewers have struggled at home this year, both in pitching and hitting.
Junior Guerra threw a gem (at least as much of a gem you can have after being pulled after 5.2 innings) last night. Zach Davies hopes to rebound from a poor outing in New York and follow Guerra's great effort, while Christian Yelich is making his first start since coming off the DL, which will hopefully give the offense a boost as he returns to the second spot in the order.
Not in the lineup is Ryan Braun, with Hernan Perez getting the start in left field. It was just revealed that Braun is dealing with another problem with his left calf.
First pitch is scheduled for 12:40 p.m. CDT.
