Milwaukee Set To Battle World Champs

The Crew will start a 3-game series in Philly today, going head-to-head with the 2008 World Champions. We all look back at the regular-season series that resulted in Milwaukee getting swept in an embarrassing fashion. It was bad.

Of course, Milwaukee faired a tad bit better when the matched up with Philly in the NLDS where the Crew only scored 9 runs. Regardless of that, the Crew isn't out for redemption this week.

Tonight, Manny Parra (LHP, 0-2) will face off against Jamie Moyer (LHP, 0-1) in a showdown that will display the two struggling southpaws. Philly was rained-out yesterday.

Probable pitchers for the series (disregard Blanton for today).

HERE is a break down on the match-ups. Phillies (5-6) vs Brewers (4-8)

-Corey Hart has made some changes to his stance. Whatever. Basically the dude isn't swinging at the first pitch. Like he did in the playoffs last year.

-The Phillies have had some concerns with their pitching this season. They are hoping to turn it around against the Crew.

-Jordan Zimmerman notched his first career win in his first career start last night in D.C. Despite the rain and chilly temps, he was able to work 6 innings and work his way out of a couple of jams. The Nats beat the Braves 3-2. HERE is a nice story about this eventful evening. Washington has high hopes for this young Auburndale native rightie. Apparently there were only 70 (estimated) fans that stuck around to watch it. The game ended just after midnight. Congrats to this Wisconsinsite.
