    Brewers (64-60) at Cardinals (65-57) Aug 19-21


    Mon, Aug 19 7:45 PM EDT
    At Busch Stadium
    TV: FS-M, FSWI, MLBN (out-of-market only)


    Zach Davies
    RHP
    8-5, 3.74 ERA, 78 SO
    Davies will return from his two-week stint on the injured list to face the Cardinals. The Brewers hope the time off can help reset the righty, who allowed 18 runs (17 earned) in three starts before going on the shelf.
    Dakota Hudson
    RHP
    11-6, 3.82 ERA, 97 SO
    Hudson put together one of his best starts of the season Wednesday, shutting out the Royals over six innings, allowing five hits and two walks while striking out four. It was a much-needed rebound for Hudson after giving up 11 runs (10 earned) in his three previous outings.
    Tue, Aug 20 7:45 PM EDT
    At Busch Stadium
    TV: FSWI, FS-M


    Gio Gonzalez
    LHP
    2-1, 3.81 ERA, 47 SO
    The key word will be longevity for Gonzalez vs. St. Louis. The southpaw has been limited to five or fewer innings each of his past three starts and has pitched into the seventh just once in 11 starts this season for Milwaukee.
    Michael Wacha
    RHP
    6-6, 5.44 ERA, 75 SO
    Wacha secured his spot in the rotation with five innings of work Thursday against the Reds, allowing two runs in the Cardinals' loss. Wacha has a 2.25 ERA against the Brewers this year, allowing three runs combined over two games.
    Wed, Aug 21 7:45 PM EDT
    At Busch Stadium
    TV: FSWI, FS-M


    Adrian Houser
    RHP
    5-5, 3.76 ERA, 79 SO
    Houser continued to impress in the Brewers' ailing rotation on Friday vs. Washington, allowing one run over a career-high seven innings. That start came on the heels of a 10-strikeout performance against Texas.
    Adam Wainwright
    RHP
    9-8, 4.33 ERA, 124 SO
    Wainwright held the Reds scoreless through five innings Friday, before giving up three earned runs in the sixth and one unearned run in the seventh. Wainwright has been stellar at home this season, going 6-2 with a 2.19 ERA in 11 starts.

    Sorry I've been out of commission for a week or so. I work at school and we just went back, so it's been a bit crazy. It's also harder to keep up when I can't watch the games. Stupid DISH.

    Lot's of important games against the Brewers, and it's our chance to end their season.

    Brewers to finish out August have:

    at Cardinals 3
    Dbacks 3
    Cardinals 3
    at Cubs 3

    Strength of schedule favors Cardinals for the remainder of the month but its in the Cardinals hands.

    Carpenter's looking good tonight... 1-2 with a walk. Not great, but his AB's... 5 pitches, 8 pitches, 5 pitches...

    AB's like that are valuable, especially when they don't end up as outs.

    He seems to be day by day with good plate appearances. He had the best looking PA's of the night of anyone on the team. He was comfortable facing Davies, who had everybody else fooled.

    Hudson with a no-no going.

    Schildt made the right move there.

    Team no-no? 6 outs to go!

    Gallegos hung some pitches in there. That was pretty ugly and lucky.

    Bader made a nice swing.

    Edman looks lost flailing at pitches the last two games. That's a situation where weak contact and putting the ball in play isn't a good thing.

    Sucks to pull Wacha there. Sucks even more that Thomas didn't come through.

    I get why he did it. Probably for the best... appreciate the good 4 innings Wacha got us, and don't push him until he falls apart.

    Yeah, but these are must wins, and we can tax the bullpen all we need to. The Rockies this weekend are far less important than these 3 games.

    Except when you have a guy doing well... you risk the pen blowing it, like they did.
