The Cubs go back to the day game schedule for a couple days, hosting the Milwaukee Brewers today at 1:20pm CT. Ryan Dempster gets his second start of the season, as does Yovani Gallardo. Here’s hoping each recreates their first outing. Dempster was excellent, Gallardo was terrible.

On the Cubs’ lineup, it’s nice to see some lefties in there, but why does Dale Sveum continue to bat Bryan LaHair and Ian Stewart back-to-back? Break them up, dude. Otherwise, a lefty reliever late in the game becomes an easy call for the Brewers.

For the Brewers, Ryan Braun gets the day off. Or is he just hiding behind his really cool mask?
