Yeah, got to look at the performances of these two starters - Milwaukee's finest and Arizona's worst, to date - and reckon the Diamondbacks don't have much chance. Jackson has been really bad his last couple of outings, though there will be a higher ERA sitting in the Brewers' dugout: Doug Davis is at a sturdy 8.13 after six starts. Weren't there people who were miffed we didn't re-sign him this off-season? Sadly, we miss the chance to tee of on our former player this season.

Lineups and stuff after the jump.

  1. Kelly Johnson 2B
  2. Stephen Drew SS
  3. Mark Reynolds 3B
  4. Adam LaRoche 1B
  5. Chris Young CF
  6. Gerardo Parra RF
  7. Cole Gillespie LF
  8. John Hester C
  9. Edwin Jackson RHP

Never mind beating Gallardo, we have yet to score off him: in two starts and 12 innings, we have managed eight hits and zero runs. Those outings were back in 2007, when Gallardo was a raw 21-year old, so I can't say I feel particularly confident about us doing much better with three years more experience under his belt.

Hence, it's probably a good night for me to be entirely out of action, since we're off to see Penn and Teller. I've swapped recaps with 'Skins - who apparently didn't realize who was pitching - and so will be doing Sunday's event, whenever I return from EdBigHeadFest. If we win tonight, it'll be a pleasant surprise, to be honest.
