Tampa Bay Rays At Milwaukee Brewers: Rays Look To Win 5th Straight Game

After taking the series opener last night 8-4, he Tampa Bay Rays look to win their 5th straight tonight as they take on the Milwaukee Brewers tonight at Miller Park.

Jeremy Hellickson (7-5, 3.09 ERA, 4.12 FIP) will be on the mound for the Rays tonight, trying to build from his strong 7 inning performance against the Red Sox over the weekend. Hellickson will be matched up against the Brewer's Zack Greinke (6-2, 5.23 ERA, 2.55 FIP). Greinke was roughed up in his last start, giving up 8 hits and 8 runs (6 earned) in 5.1 innings against the Chicago Cubs on Thursday. Before Thursday's loss, Greinke had won his previous 6 decisions.

One thing I'd look for is how the bullpen will do after Kyle Farnsworth, J.P. Howell, and Cesar Ramos all pitching last night. Let's hope Hellickson can eat up some innnings to give the pen some rest.
