Your Crew is back to .500 in the ultra-competitive race for the Cactus Cup after yesterday’s 10-1 drubbing of the Texas Rangers.
Today, they face the Angels in their first televised game of the spring slate. You’ll have to deal with the Angels announcers, though, as the broadcast is being put together by the Fox Sports West production crew.
In a late change, taking the ball first for the Brewers today will be last year’s Minor League Pitcher of the Year, Zack Brown. The original listed “starter,” Burch Smith, will pitch in relief later in the game instead.
The rest of the announced lineup:

It’s worth noting that Adam McCalvy says Mauricio Dubon is sick, but another interesting prospect — Brice Turang — is on the team’s travel list for today’s game and could play in Dubon’s place.
On the other side, a familiar face will be batting cleanup today:
