Brewers Look To Get Back To Winning Ways Starting Tonight

The Milwaukee Brewers were swept for the first time all season in Toronto on Tuesday and Wednesday. After an off day Thursday, the Brewers now face the Cincinnati Reds in a three-game weekend series. Friday night’s first pitch is at 6:10 with Saturday and Sunday games being played during the day.

Milwaukee remains top team in the NL Central with a five-game lead over the St. Louis Cardinals despite losing three straight. The Reds, whom are seven-games back, have played the Brewers tough and hold the season series 4-2.

Kyle Lohse, Milwaukee’s most consistent pitcher, looks to get back to his winning ways when he takes the ball in game one. Lohse (9-2, 3.08) delivered his 13th quality start of the season, but saw a victory slip away from the bullpen. He has allowed three or fewer earned runs in four straight starts.

The Reds will counter with the NL-wins leader in Alfredo Simon. Simon (10-3, 2.81) took a no-decision in his last start against the San Francisco Giants.

The offense went silent in Toronto, but good news is they will be in a hitter’s ball park over the weekend. American Ball Park in Cincinnati has surrendered the most home runs in baseball since 2010.

Entering Friday, Jonathan Lucroy, Scooter Gennett and Carlos Gomez have been the most consistent hitters all year and with Ryan Braun’s batting average creeping towards .300, Brewers have a lot of power to win a game if it turns into a shootout.

Other pitching match-ups for the weekend include Matt Garza vs. Homer Bailey on Saturday and Yovani Gallardo vs. Mat Latos in the finale.
