Series Preview: Brewers (33-30) @ Astros (32-32)

The True Blue Brew Crew meets the Astros for the third time in 2008, having been swept in three games during the first meeting in Houston, while sweeping the Astros in three games in the series in Milwaukee. The Brewers enter the series alone in 3rd place in the NL Central, 6½ games back of Chicago, while the Astros sit in 4th place and 8 games back of the Cubs.
Pitching Probables:
Tuesday, 6/10, 7:05 p.m. CT: RHP Seth McClung (3-2, 4.25) vs. RHP Roy Oswalt (4-6, 5.38)
Wednesday, 6/11, 7:05 p.m. CT: LHP Manny Parra (4-2, 4.33) vs. RHP Brandon Backe (4-7, 4.66)
Thursday, 6/12, 12:05 p.m. CT: RHP Ben Sheets (6-1, 2.62) vs. RHP Brian Moehler (3-2, 3.76)
Things to look for:
* The Astros have a grand total of 2 innings worth of relief in 2007 versus McClung…can McClung capitalize on the Astros having little first-hand experience?
* Can Parra avenge his 6-2 loss at Houston earlier this year?
* What about Oswalt? He’s off to a rocky start in ’08…and he’s 3-4, 3.80 over the past three years against the Brew Crew?
