Milwaukee (1-0) at St Louis (0-1) 8:10 pm EDT


ST. LOUIS (Ticker) -- Jason Marquis hopes to get off to a

good start with his new team Tuesday night as the St. Louis

Cardinals continue a four-game series with the Milwaukee

Brewers at Busch Stadium.


Marquis made just two starts for Atlanta last season and

was traded with two other pitchers to St. Louis for outfielder

J.D. Drew and catcher Eli Marerro in December.


The 25-year-old Marquis is hoping for a better result than Matt

Morris, who allowed seven runs - five earned - and five hits

in six innings in Monday's 8-6 loss.


The Brewers, who won 68 games last season, had just six

hits Monday. Ben Grieve hit a two-run homer and

Scott Podsednik hit a three-run shot.


Pitching matchup:


Milwaukee - Doug Davis (3-2, 2.58 ERA); last season vs. St.

Louis (0-0, 54.00).


St. Louis - Marquis (0-0, 5.53 ERA); last season vs. Milwaukee

(0-0, 0.60).


Who's Hot:


Milwaukee - CF Podsednik, 2-for-5, homer, four RBI; RF Grieve, 2-for-4,

homer, three RBI.


St. Louis - C Mike Matheny, 2-for-3, two runs.


Who's Not:


Milwaukee - SS Craig Counsell, 0-for-3; 1B Lyle Overbay, 0-for-5,

two strikeouts.


St. Louis - CF Jim Edmonds, 0-for-5.


2004 Series: Milwaukee, 1-0; All-time series: St. Louis, 54-33




Milwaukee - None.


St. Louis - None.


Upcoming probables:


Milwaukee - Matt Kinney (10-13, 5.19) vs. St. Louis - Woody Williams

(18-9, 3.87), April 7

When was the last time the Brewers were 2 games over .500? It has to be more than 2+ years. They can reach that mark with a win today.

[ Hey, is this Statfox thing new this year? It's very good and will be very informative after the Brewers get a few games under their belt. Where do you come up with all the numbers? ]


We've actually had the Statfox info for a couple of years now. It's provided by Statfox who actually is a local (Milwaukee area) stat company, who fortunately, are Brewers fans.

about MAtheny:


Boy it has been a couple of years, but it still hurts when it is a former brewer


Anybody else want to laugh last night when the Cards finished with a battery of Tavarez and Matheny?

Jenkins with an RBI triple in the top of the third 3-2 crew.


I got nervous because I was worried there would be a play at third and that Jenkins would have to slide. I am glad he didn't have to.


Gotta keep him healthy.

Either that or the Cards got lucky.


If Davis were pitching ugly, I'd expect Edmonds, Pujols, Rolen, and/or Sanders to do most of the damage.


Marquis is looking ugly, though. If the Crew can pounce on him in the fifth, and rack up three or four runs in a big inning, they can put Hernandez in and let the bullpen take over.


If LaRussa isn't quick with the hook...




It seems Davis has good secondaries (WHIP of 1.00, 4 K in 5 innings). Chalk up the gopher balls to bad luck.

Homers, doubles... I don't care - just as long as they score more runs than the other team!
