Happy Father’s Day to all you merry commenters and to your fathers as well.
Brewer at Dodgers, 1:10PM PT, TV: SPNLA, FSWI
Two righthanded fathers (Garza, six kids; Maeda, one) go at each other this afternoon. The Brewers’ Matt Garza (0-0, 2.25 ERA) is making only his second start of the year; he missed the first ten weeks with a strained right lat muscle. In his first start he went four innings, gave up one run, struck out five and walked only one. His opposite number, Kenta Maeda (6-4, 2.75 ERA) took a line drive off his shin his last time out; the team insists there was no lasting damage and he’s good to go.
Howie Kendrick is 8-15 lifetime against Garza.
