Milwaukee Brewers Preview
After losing both games of a home interleague series against the Chicago White Sox, the Milwaukee Brewers are hoping to reverse course Wednesday when the same teams meet in Chicago.
Brewers right-hander Adrian Houser (0-0, 1.80 ERA) will aim to build on a solid start against the White Sox on July 22 at Guaranteed Rate Field, when he yielded only one run and two hits in 4 2/3 innings in a 77-pitch tune-up. Houser has not faced the White Sox during the regular season and is 2-1 with a 2.42 ERA in seven career interleague appearances, including four starts.
Milwaukee center fielder Avisail Garcia, a former White Sox player, has four hits and three RBIs in his past three games.
