Brewers Look to Keep Good Times Rolling Against Cliff Lee ☆

Milwaukee Brewers starter Matt Garza had a bizarre outing on Wednesday night in Philadelphia, giving up eight hits, four runs and walking two, but he hung in there after some miscues on his part (a poor throw to second base and a balk among them) and some at-times shoddy defense behind him to pitch six complete innings.  That’s what the Brewers need their starters to do, even...
