National League Preview from The Sports Network



Friday, April 12th (All times Eastern)

Milwaukee Brewers (2-6) at St. Louis Cardinals (5-4), 8:15 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: Milwaukee - Kyle Lohse (0-0, 1.50) St. Louis - Shelby Miller (1-0, 3.38)

(Sports Network) - Kyle Lohse returns to St. Louis on Friday when his new team, the Milwaukee Brewers begin a three-game series against the Cardinals at Busch Stadium.

Lohse had been scheduled to pitch in the finale of Milwaukee's three-game set with the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday, but that game was postponed due to the miserable conditions at Wrigley Field. The Brewers were more than happy with the day off, as they enter Friday's opener having lost six of seven.

Of course, Lohse enjoyed a career year with St. Louis last season, posting a 16-3 mark to go along with a 2.86 ERA. He spent five seasons with the Cardinals and was 55-35 with a 3.90 ERA.

But, the Cardinals opted not to re-sign him this offseason and Lohse finally found a home in Milwaukee in late March. He was effective in his first start with the Brewers last Friday against Arizona, but did not get a decision, despite surrendering just a run and five hits in six innings.

"Located his pitches well, had good life on his ball," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said.

Lohse has faced the Cardinals five times and is 2-2 with a 3.34 ERA.

St. Louis, meanwhile, won in impressive fashion on Wednesday, as Jake Westbrook tossed his fourth career shutout in the Cardinals' 10-0 rout of the Cincinnati Reds. Westbrook (1-1) surrendered just five hits and four walks in the gem for the Cardinals, who have won four of their last five games.

"Jake was terrific," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. "It was fun to watch."

Matt Carpenter smacked a two-run homer among his four hits, while Carlos Beltran and Matt Adams added two-run shots. Jon Jay smacked a solo blast in the triumph.

Getting the call for the Cardinals on Friday will be righty Shelby Miller, who won his season debut. Miller defeated the San Francisco Giants on Saturday, limiting them to a pair of runs and four hits in 5 1/3 innings. However, he did walk four batters.

"I just think he's radically changed," manager Mike Matheny said. "He knew that there were some things he was doing early on keeping him from getting here and he changed and he was rewarded and then he said, 'This is who I need to be.' It was a transformation."

St. Louis was 9-6 versus the Brewers last season.
