Brewers return to action Friday

After Thursday’s off-day, the Milwaukee Brewers (46-62) are back on the field tonight as the Washington Nationals (52-56)  visit Miller Park for the first of three.

Milwaukee is coming off a seven-game, six-day road trip there they posted a 4-3 record.  Among those wins, three came against the Chicago Cubs (49-59).  Milwaukee was able to cut the deficit down to 3.5 games as they try to catch Chicago and get out of the basement in the National League Central.

On the mound tonight for the Brewers is Tom Gorzelanny (2-4, 2.83 ERA) who makes another start after starting the year in the bullpen.  Auburndale native and former UW Stevens Point Standout Jordan Zimmermann (12-6, 3.19 ERA) takes the mound for the Nationals.  Zimmermann has one career start at Miller Park where he allowed just 1-run in 6-innings while picking up the win.

Tonight’s first pitch is 7:10.
