Interesting news from the Brewers this evening, as rookie right-hander Jimmy Nelson has been scratched from tomorrow’s start against the Cardinals due to a blister. This mostly sounds like a convenient excuse to manipulate their rotation for the big weekend series at Busch Stadium in St. Louis.
The Brewers and Cardinals now line up like this:
Tonight – Wily Peralta vs. Adam Wainwright
Saturday – Kyle Lohse vs. Justin Masterson
Sunday – Matt Garza vs. John Lackey
The Brewers will begin play tonight with a two-game lead over the Cardinals in the NL Central. This series should be a lot of fun.
