Series Preview: Brewers (8-4) @ Cardinals (9-4)

The Brewers continue their road trip in St. Louis, for their first meeting of the year with the Redbirds. The winner of this series will be in first place in the division.
Pitching Probables:
Tuesday, 4/15, 7:15 p.m. CT: RHP Dave Bush (0-2, 8.44) vs. RHP Braden Looper (2-0, 3.09)
Wednesday, 4/16, 7:15 p.m. CT: RHP Carlos Villanueva (1-1, 4.76) vs. RHP Adam Wainwright (1-1, 3.60)
Thursday, 4/17, 12:15 p.m. CT: LHP Manny Parra (1-1, 4.82) vs. RHP Kyle Lohse (2-0, 1.04)
Things to look for:
1. Dave Bush has struggled in every start this year, and facing the Cards will be a true test of whether or not he belongs in the rotation (according to MLB.com, Bush is 1-3, 7.61 lifetime in four starts vs. the Redbirds).
2. With all three Cardinals’ starters being righties, can Prince Fielder finally get his first home run of the season?
3. Will Gabe Gross–likely to get the start for all three games in center with Tony Gwynn, Jr. now on the DL–be able to prove he belongs on the 25-man after Mike Cameron is eligible?
