Series Preview: Padres (53-86) @ Brewers (80-59)

Oh, what a difference a year makes. In September of ’07, the Padres came to Milwaukee at the end of the season, trying to clinch a playoff birth. Now it is the Brewers that are trying to make headway in both the NL Central race and the NL Wild Card race. The Brewers took 2 of 3 at San Diego earlier this year.
Pitching Probables:
Thursday, September 4, 7:05 p.m. CT: LHP Shawn Estes (1-1, 3.33) vs. RHP Jeff Suppan (10-7, 4.49)
Friday, September 5, 7:05 p.m. CT: RHP Josh Greer (1-0, 3.60) vs. LHP CC Sabathia (15-8, 2.82)
Saturday, September 6, 6:05 p.m. CT: RHP Jake Peavy (9-9, 2.69) vs. RHP Ben Sheets (12-7, 2.97)
Sunday, September 7, 1:05 p.m. CT: RHP Chris Young (4-5, 4.91) vs. LHP Manny Parra (10-6, 4.10)
Things to look for:
1. Can the Crew figure out Estes, Greer and Young–three guys that they didn’t see in San Diego–fast enough to provide enough run support?
2. In the battle of aces, can the bats do better than 1 ER and 4 hits over 7 IP that they got off of Peavy back on August 14?
