Brewers visit Padres - Preview


The Milwaukee Brewers wrap up the month of August with a six game west coast trip; three in San Diego starting Monday night and then three in San Francisco starting Friday.

Pittsburgh came to Miller Park and took two of three from Milwaukee.  Before Sunday's game, the Brewers lead was down to just 1/2 game over St. Louis, the smallest margin since the two teams were tied on July 20th.

As the Brewers and Padres play, the Cardinals and Pirates meet for a three game series.  That means every Brewers win, they are guranteed to pick up a game on someone BUT every loss they will lose one game as well.

The Padres came to Miller Park back in April with Milwaukee taking 2 of 3.

Monday – 9:10 First Pitch, 8:35 pregame on 1150 WHBY
   Milwaukee:  Kyle Lohse (11-7, 3.49  ERA)
   San Diego: Jeff Locke  (6-13, 4.53 ERA)
