Brewers-Dodgers preview

LOS ANGELES -- Matt Garza and Kenta Maeda are hoping they fare much better Sunday than the starting pitchers did Saturday.

Garza and Maeda will face off in the final game of the four-game series between the clubs at Dodger Stadium.

On Saturday, Los Angeles starter Mike Bolsinger and Milwaukee's Chase Anderson were both knocked out early as both clubs feasted in a 10-6 win by the Dodgers. Neither Bolsinger or Anderson lasted three innings.

"It's tough. I'm not going to sit up here and make excuses anymore. I've just got to figure it out," said Bolsinger, who is good friends with Anderson and are former teammates with the Arizona Diamondbacks. "For me, it's just kind of getting on the mound and working on things. It's little things. I'm sure I'll figure it out."


Anderson said, "It's frustrating. Wasn't able to make pitches when I needed to make pitches, and when I made pitches, they found a hole. It wasn't might night."

Garza (0-0, 2.25 ERA), who will make his second start of the season on Sunday, received a no-decision in the Brewers' 3-2 loss to the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday. He allowed one run and eight hits with five strikeouts and a walk in four innings.

Garza had been on the disabled list since April with a right lat strain. In his only career start against Los Angeles, he gave up three runs and four hits with three walks and five strikeouts in an 8-2 loss on May 5, 2015, at Miller Park in Milwaukee.

Maeda (6-4, 2.75 ERA) left in the sixth inning of his last start on Tuesday against Arizona when he was struck on the leg by a line drive off the bat of Paul Goldschmidt. Maeda was charged with three runs (two earned) and six hits with six strikeouts and a walk in 5 1/3 innings of a 7-4 win by Los Angeles over Arizona.

The Dodgers, who have won the past two games against the Brewers, will attempt to capture the series with a win.

Justin Turner has been instrumental in the past two victories over the Brewers. On Friday, Turner homered twice and drove in the winning run with a walk-off single in the 10th inning of a 3-2 decision.

On Saturday, Turner smashed a three-run homer that tied the score in the third inning.

"Just a great night," said Turner, who tied a season high with three RBIs. "To be down early and fight back into it, you've got to tip the cap to the bullpen. They come in and have to pick up a lot of innings and throw zeroes up there and keep us in the game and give us a chance to win."

Howie Kendrick and Joc Pederson also went deep. Pederson delivered a solo shot in the sixth for the Dodgers (37-33), who finished with 14 hits to 11 for the Brewers.

Ryan Braun hit his 12th home run of the season for Milwaukee (31-38), which dropped its fifth in six games.
