Series Preview: Brewers (9-6) @ Reds (7-9)

The Brewers finish their road trip with three games in Cincinnati.  The series is the second of the year against the Reds, and the first in Cincinnati.  The Brewers were 1-2 in their homestand against the Reds earlier this month, and were outscored 18-8 over the three games.
Pitching Probables:
1. Friday, 4/18, 6:10 p.m. CT: RHP Ben Sheets (2-0, 1.17) vs. RHP Bronson Arroyo (0-1, 5.17)
2. Saturday, 4/19, 12:10 p.m. CT: RHP Jeff Suppan (1-0, 4.67) vs. RHP Johnny Cueto (1-1, 3.72)
3. Sunday, 4/20, 12:10 p.m. CT: TBD vs. RHP Aaron Harang (1-2, 3.33)
Things to watch for:
1. The Brewers get their second look at both Johnny Cueto and Aaron Harang…Cueto fanned 8 Brewers over 6 1/3 IP in the game that the Brewers came back to win, while Harang allowed just one run and 5 hits over 8 IP for a Reds’ win. Will the second look at each help the Brewers get more run production?
2. If Yovani Gallardo makes the start on Sunday against Harang, will he be ready to outduel the Reds’ ace?
3. Can Suppan improve upon his 0-1, 7.31 mark at Great American over the past three seasons?
