SAN DIEGO - Eric Thames, Travis Shaw and Orlando Arcia are all out of the lineup tonight as the Milwaukee Brewers open a four-game series against the San Diego Padres at Petco Park.

Thames has been dealing with sore legs and Shaw has some sore fingers after a fielding mishap in yesterday's game. Arcia, meanwhile, is getting a night off for the second time in four games.

Thames, Braun, and Shaw all MIA and we don't notice!  

I am liking many of these kids.  Pena, Aguilar, Perez, Guerra, Thames, and now Sogard.  All guys who didn't quite make it to Major League starter or Major Leagues at all and now seem unstoppable.   Could add Broxton except he was a little young when Pittsburgh gave him to us.

Question, is Stearns that good or are Counsell and his staff the difference?  Or both?

5 games over .500 now a quarter of the way into the season.They just keep finding ways to win. As mentioned earlier this is all without our top two sluggers playing recently. Great having Shaw back. They seem to grow as a team with each win. We just might see Thames in the series finale.

Just got back from the game . Quite a good amount of Brewers fans at the game again today. Sogard just keeps producing. Him driving in 3 of the 4 runs was great to see. Davies pitched a good one . Knebel made it tense with two outs in the bottom of the 9th but he was throwing some 98-99 mph fastballs to help seal the deal. In first place, 8-2 in the last 10 games, one of the hottest teams in the league now. Keep turning up the heat !
