Series Preview: Brewers (68-51) @ Padres (46-72)

Milwaukee heads back out on the road after sweeping theNL team with the worst record, theNationals, at home. The Crew takes on the team with the second worst record in the NL, the Padres, for their first series against San Diego this year after going 2-5 against the Friars last year.
Pitching Probables:
Tuesday, August 12, 9:05 p.m. CT: RHP Jeff Suppan (7-7, 4.70) vs. RHP Cha Seung Bak (4-6, 5.06)
Wednesday, August 13, 9:05 p.m. CT: LHP CC Sabathia (12-8, 3.11) vs. RHP Josh Banks (3-4, 3.77)
Thursday, August 14, 2:35 p.m. CT: RHP Ben Sheets (11-5, 2.95) vs. RHP Jake Peavy (8-8, 2.68)
Things to look for:
1. Can the Crew improve upon their 32-28 road mark and extend their 6-game winning streak?
2. Will Milwaukee’s “pair of aces” continue to dominate on the road?
3. Can Brewers’ bats provide enough run support for Sheets on Thursday when facing Padres’ ace Peavy, who is 4-4, 1.43 at home this year?
