Game 3 Wednesday, 5:10pm

Ian Kennedy (6-9, 4.44 ERA) vs. Taylor Jungmann (5-3, 2.23 ERA)

Kennedy has allowed three runs or less in 11 straight starts. He has won two of his last three starts. He pitched seven innings and allowed two runs his last time out. He has a 3.60 ERA in 4 career starts at Miller Park.

Jungmann will be making his 11 major league start. He has allowed more than two runs once this season. He is 2-0 with a complete game in two starts against NL West teams this year. He was drafted 12th overall out of Texas in the 2011 draft.

Offensive Player to Watch: Ryan Braun

When you think of the Brewers, Braun always comes to mind. He is having a season much like that of Alex Rodriguez. Shaking off the PED suspension and hate, Braun has bounced back nicely with 19 home runs, 63 RBI and an .829 OPS so far this season. He has one career home run against Kennedy and he is also the only Brewer to have hit a home run in the past week.
