The Brewers avoided a three-game sweep to the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday, winning 8-4 behind a strong performance by Zach Greinke.
Milwaukee will host the Arizona Diamondbacks this weekend at Miller Park. The Brewers have a 5 game home winning streak against the D-Backs and will look to veteran Randy Wolf tonight to try and continue the recent success.
Losers of 4 of the past 5, the Brewers need a strong home stand against Arizona and Florida this upcoming week. They’re currently 7 games back of division leader Cincinnati.
Inconsistencies have cost the Brewers games all season, most notably in the bullpen. The Brewers have blown a league high 11 saves and 6 of those have come in Randy Wolf’s starts, including each of the last 4 games he has started. The veteran hasn’t won a game in his past ten outings.
Ian Kennedy (5-7) will take the mound tonight for Arizona tonight. The Diamondbacks come into Milwaukee off a 3-2 win in Atlanta on Thursday.

While my past experiences have been in science and engineering, I have recently found a passion for Sports Administration and Event Management. I have been a volunteer intern for two years with the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference and have met some great people. I've gained knowledge in the areas of Event Management, Broadcasting, Sports Information, Stat Running, and Athletic Administration and I've thoroughly enjoyed working in every one of those facets. I would love to start a career in athletics if an opportunity arises.
