Thanks to the IGT creators of the last couple of days, so I could attend Tuesday's and Wednesday's games (the latter featuring a visit from our own Mass Haas)!

Back to today's tilt, though.

Red Sox:

RF Mookie Betts (R)
2B Dustin Pedroia (R)
SS Xander Bogaerts (R)
LF Andrew Benintendi L)
1B Mitch Moreland (L)
CF Jackie Bradley, Jr. (L)
3B Josh Rutledge (R)
C Christian Vazquez (R)
LHP Eduardo Rodriguez (L)


Brewers:

2B Jonathan Villar (S)
CF Keon Broxton (R)
LF Hernan Perez (R)
3B Travis Shaw (L)
RF Domingo Santana (R)
1B Jesus Aguilar (R)
C Manny Pina (R)
SS Orlando Arcia (R)
RHP Jimmy Nelson (R)

The last time the Red Sox were swept in Milwaukee was 1987.

Remember: the Brewers never panic like you do.

Anyone know the reasoning for a noon start time? Maybe it slips past me but I don't recall too many of those when we are at home.

I'm guessing it's a school-year thing, since it typically only holds for April and May.

Remember: the Brewers never panic like you do.

Yeah, it's for field trips (says the middle school teacher)

Jimmy seems like a really excellent candidate to say goodbye to his rotation spot when Guerra returns. Although that one is on Aguilar.

I'll be the first to be slightly disappointed Keon isn't leading off again. 2 spot is ok but it seems to be a fix while Thames sits. Villar needs to take a deep breath down in the 7 hole I think for a bit. Hope I'm wrong.

Hopefully Villar moves down when Braun returns. There's no reason not to have Keon near the top of the order right now.

Broxton out at third trying to steal = good hustle kid.

Villar does it and everyone loses their minds.

It's not a bad move, especially with no Thames in, didn't work out. I didn't see the fly out from Perez but assume it would have scored Keon if he has made it.

I agree there was no reason the other night for everyone getting on Villar for trying to take 3rd with 1 out.

[laughing] Yeah, I hear you on all parts. We just seem to pick apart some players and others we don't seem to mind much.

This game has getting out of control written all over it. We very well could be seeing the end of Jimmy Nelson as a starting pitcher for the Crew. (fingers crossed)

Not a great start. Error directly leads to a run in the first. Broxton gets caught trying to steal third.

And now the bases are loaded (2 from walks). The walks recently have really gotten out of hand.

Wow, Jimmy was on the ropes there. Good to see him get out of it.

I know Villar's bat hasn't been good so far this year, but I haven't heard anyone saying he can't make it at 2nd in a long time .

I hope Thames and Braun can at least come off the bench in this one. We may not have much for runs today with this lineup.

Maybe the easiest way to get Betts out is to walk him, and get Pedroia to hit into a DP.

Brewers have the highest OPS (And most runs scored) in the majors in the 1st 6 innings. We have the lowest OPS (Second fewest runs scored) in innings 7-9. So a lot riding on the bottom of the 6th!

Does Broxton have a history of making dumb outs on the basepaths?

Interesting stat. I'd be curious to know how teams rank by the difference in OPS between innings 1 - 3 and 6 - 9.
