7-28-07: Brewers (Parra) @ Cardinals (Thompson), 12:00 PM CT


First game of a doubleheader


Pitching matchups


MIL: LHP Manny Parra (0-0, 3.86 ERA)

His fastball touches 93 mph, and he has impressed Yost with an ability to throw that pitch, plus a slider and a changeup, for strikes. Parra, coming off several years of injury issues, made only four Triple-A starts before his promotion, but one of them was a perfect game.


STL: RHP Brad Thompson (6-4, 4.93 ERA)

The right-hander learned a valuable lesson on Sunday. He can survive without his bread-and-butter sinker being sharp. He wouldn't want to have to do it every game, but it's nice to know it's there.


Player to watch


Left fielder Geoff Jenkins is hitting .326 in day games, with six of his 13 home runs.

Come on Manny!


I'm predicting 5.1 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 3K, 1BB.


When I think of double headers I always think of being outscored 21-3 by Pittsburgh in 2004. That felt like the start of that awful second half.


Come on Crew, lets at least clinch a split in this series today. Anything better than that, and the Cards might pack it in for the year.

Scenarios for after today:


if Brewers sweep and Cubs lose: 4.5 up

if Brewers sweep and Cubs win: 3.5 up

if the Brewers win one and Cubs lose 3.5 up

if the Brewers win one and Cubs win: 2.5 up

if Brewers get swept and Cubs lose: 2.5 up

if Brewers get swept and Cubs win: 1.5 up



Lots of options....big day!!

I don't know what percentage of double headers result in splits, but it seems like about 2 out of 3. I'd be fine with a split today. No offense to Parra, but Capuano could sure use a win, and he deserves one the way he has pitched in his last few outings.


Of course, no reason to set my sights low - so here's to winning a pair today and kicking sand in the Cubbies' faces!
