Despite a disappointing loss for the Milwaukee Brewers last night, the team is looking forward to game two of their four game series against the Chicago White Sox. The Brewers go into the second and final game of the homestand just one game under .500 at 3-4. The White Sox enter Tuesday’s game on a five-game hot streak, with a 6-4 record.
There is no other pitcher the Brewers would rather have on the mound in this “get back on track” game than their ace, Brandon Woodruff. Woodruff hasn’t pitched since last week Wednesday against the Pittsburgh Pirates. He pitched an absolute gem, only allowing one infield hit. In his two starts in 2020, the former All-Star has an impressive 1.59 ERA.
The White Sox starter in game two of four will be righty Lucas Giolito. The hurler has been less than stellar so far in 2020. Another former All-Star, Giolito has given up 7 earned runs in only nine and two-thirds innings. The Brewers will attempt to take advantage of his shaky start Tuesday night.
First pitch tonight will be thrown at 7:10 p.m. central from Miller Park. As usual, fans can watch on Fox Sports Wisconsin and listen on 620 WTMJ AM and local affiliates.

Tonight’s game two lineup is filled with left-handed batters for the Brewers. Given that Giolito is right-handed, it’s not surprising that manager Craig Counsell would stack the lineup with lefties. Eric Sogard, who has been an on-base machine throughout the early season, is batting lead-off for the Crew. Logan Morrison will start the game as tonight’s designated hitter, and Brock Holt gets the start tonight at third base.
