Game #76: Diamondbacks vs. Brewers

Stephen Dunn

It's day baseball, not locally televised, as Arizona tries to get a split of the four-game set against Milwaukee. Chase Anderson, having tasted defeat for the first time, has another tough task as he goes up against Yovani Gallardo.

Untelevised day baseball! S'alright, since I'll probably be paying more attention to the England-Uruguay game, also going on this afternoon - just as soon as I can figure out how to paint my face like a Uruguayan flag. [I'm not sure why, but my spell-checker has ni problems with "Uruguayan", but coughed up a hairball the other day at "Ghanaian". Seems to have learned it this time though, not that it's a word likely to cross my keyboard for at least another four years] A win this afternoon would give us another shot at overtaking the Padres, if they go down to the Mariners later in the day.

The big news today in the line-up is Gregorius making his first ever start in the majors at third-base. In fact, it does not appear he has even played there in the minor-leagues, so this promised to be an entirely new experience for him, manning the hot corner. See how that works out. Also interesting to see Peralta batting the highest he has ever started a game, at #5. Obviously, that's in part because Miguel Montero is getting to rest, this being a day game after a night game. Gallardo has had his way with us - he is undefeated in nine starts against Arizona, going 6-0 with a 1.93 ERA - so this will be a tough one.
