Series Preview: Brewers (77-56) @ Pirates (57-76)

Pitching Probables:
Friday, August 29, 6:05 p.m. CT: RHP Dave Bush (8-9, 4.24) vs. LHP Tom Gorzelanny (6-8, 6.82)
Saturday, August 30, 6:05 p.m. CT: RHP Jeff Suppan (9-7, 4.58) vs. LHP Paul Maholm (8-7, 3.62)

Things to look for:
1. Can the Brewers add to their 8-1 record against the Bucs in ’08?
2. With 2-3 arms awaiting September call-ups, can the Brewers rely more on their relievers this weekend?
3. Will Gabe Kapler (.346 BA vs. lefties), Bill Hall (.336 BA vs. lefties), Mike Cameron (.318 BA vs. lefties) and Ryan Braun (.313 BA vs. lefties) fair better facing two southpaw starters at the beginning of the series?
