Back to Miller Park and start times more conducive to our bedtimes

MLB: Milwaukee Brewers at Los Angeles Dodgers

I have a prediction: The Milwaukee Brewers will allow fewer runs tonight than last night. In fact, I’ll predict that they’ll allow fewer runs in the SERIES than last night.

The Brewers (63-49) have Junior Guerra (6-7, 3.43) facing the Colorado Rockies (58-50) and German Marquez (9-8, 4.82) as they return and play with little sleep at Miller Park. That’s OK; they’re young.

This is more or less the line-up that I envisioned when the deal for Jonathan Schoop was consummated Tuesday. I truly hope that Schoop will not continue to strike out three out of every four at bats.
