The Brewers kept rolling right along on Monday in a victory in the series opener against the Cubs and Eric Thames.
Oh yes, Eric Thames. The relative unknown who made his name in Korea last season has seven homers through his team’s first 13 games.
Ryan Braun has five right behind him so it’s almost a bit of a wonder that the Crew aren’t better than just a game over .500.
Tommy Milone will make his third straight start after beginning this season in the bullpen. Milone hasn’t made it through six innings yet but that isn’t necessarily what Craig Counsell expects from him.
He’s been ok twice now, giving up four earned and then three. That first start (4 IP, 4 ER) came against the Cubs in an 11-6 loss.
Kyle Hendricks lost his last time out to drop to 1-1 in his two starts. Last year’s ERA leader hasn’t been quite the same as he was last year but it’s still early.
Hendricks has given up seven earned runs in 11 innings on the year.
Joe Maddon doesn’t necessarily like to stretch his starters out but Hendricks had made economy his thing throughout a brief MLB career and you know he wants to go more than five innings.
If he can keep Milwaukee in the ballpark, Wednesday will be his first great chance. The Brewers have a powerful offense that has been dictated by the long ball so far this season.
Hendricks gave up two in his first start but didn’t serve one up last time.
