Brewers look to continue success against Arizona this weekend

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.
