Brewers return to action tonight following a scheduled off day. They will now play a stretch of 20 consecutive games with no off-days.
Tonight the Brewers are in Pittsburgh for the first time this season, for the start of a three-game series. They face Wandy Rodriguez.
Rodriguez hasn’t been good since being acquired from the Houston Astros, posting a 0-3 mark in his four starts with a 5.06 ERA and .287 BAA. (He does have one Win that came in a relief appearance during a lengthy extra-innings affair.)
The Brewers counter with Mike Fiers (6-6, 2.90) who has struggled in his most recent pair of starts after posting 9 straight QS. Fiers faced Pittsburgh back on June 3rd in Milwaukee, allowing 4 ER on 8 hits (2 HR) and 1 BB while striking out 8 over 5.0 IP.
The Brewers hope that rookie shortstop Jean Segura will be able to return to the lineup following a foot injury suffered during Tuesday’s game against the Chicago Cubs.
First pitch is scheduled for 6:05 pm CDT.
***UPDATE: Tonight’s lineup was posted at 1:57pm to Twitter and it has Segura starting at shortstop and hitting eighth.***
