MILWAUKEE - Milwaukee Brewers manager Ron Roenicke has 13 pitchers on his roster. So far, few have been done their job in this young 2013 season.
After the Brewers' 7-3 loss to the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday, the stats show the team's pitching staff has holes bigger than those you'll find in swiss cheese.
The three starters - Yovani Gallardo, Marco Estrada and Wily Peralta - have failed to pitch through the sixth inning.
Even if they had made it that far, only Gallardo would have reached a quality start. Their combined ERA in their starts? 6.46.
Then, there's John Axford. He blew Monday's save opportunity and let Colorado blow the game wide open last night.
If Axford put his ERA on his ID, he could get past a bar bouncer: 21.60.
New Brewers starter Kyle Lohse, who finished second in the 2012 Cy Young Award voting, will go to the mound on Friday when the Brewers host Arizona.
Bob Uecker and Joe Block will call Friday night's game at 6:35 p.m. on Newsradio 620 WTMJ.
