Gallardo will set a club record with his fifth straight Opening Day start. He is aiming to bounce back from a 2013 filled with personal and professional trials. Gallardo will have his hands full with a tough Athlanta team that returns almost the same lineup from 2013.
Today's game, will also feature the return of outfielder Ryan Braun, whose season was cut short last year after being suspended for 65-game suspension. Braun makes his first start of his career in right field and will be batting third in the lineup.
The Brewers also received good news Sunday, when shortstop Jean Segura was cleared to play. Segura, who has been battling a sore shoulder all spring, was able to avoid a disabled list stint to start the year. This means no Brewer will start the season on the disabled list when first pitch is thrown.
The other two probable match-ups for the remainder of the series will be, Kyle Lohse against Alex Wood Tuesday and Matt Garza versus Aaron Harang on Wednesday.
