--LHP Manny Parra was 0-4 with a 6.52 ERA after four starts. But Parra has bounced back strong over his last three outings, going 2-0 with a 3.00 ERA. He has produced a quality start in each of those starts, helping the Brewers total a major league-best 20 for the season.

--RHP Trevor Hoffman has converted all six of his save opportunities since coming off the disabled list after recovering from an oblique strain. And he has done it in dominant fashion. In seven outings overall, covering seven innings, Hoffman has allowed three hits, no walks and no runs, while striking out eight.
