SERIES PREVIEW  BREWERS VS. PHILLIES
ON DECK

TEAMS: Milwaukee Brewers (4-8) at Philadelphia Phillies (5-6).

WHEN: 6:05 p.m. Tuesday.

WHERE: Citizens Bank Ballpark, Philadelphia.

BROADCASTS: TV - FS Wisconsin. Radio - AM-620.

STARTING PITCHERS: Milwaukee LHP Manny Parra (0-2, 6.97 earned run average) vs. Philadelphia LHP Jamie Moyer (1-1, 6.55). Parra is 0-2 with a 27.00 ERA in two games (one start) against the Phillies. He was hammered (five runs in 1 1/3 inning) in the four-game debacle last September in Philadelphia that led to the firing of manager Ned Yost. Moyer is 9-5 with a 3.63 ERA in 22 career appearances (17 starts) against Milwaukee.

SCOUTING REPORT: The defending World Series champions are off to a slow start, much of it related to pitching problems (league-worst 6.87 ERA). Phillies starters had surrendered 18 home runs, including seven by RHP Brett Myers. Closer Brad Lidge blew his first save since 2007 Saturday night against San Diego.

COMING UP

WEDNESDAY: Brewers at Phillies, 6:05 p.m. Milwaukee RHP Braden Looper (1-0, 3.27) vs. Philadelphia RHP Joe Blanton (0-1, 9.00).

THURSDAY: Brewers at Phillies, 12:05 p.m. Milwaukee RHP Dave Bush (0-0, 5.40) vs. Philadelphia LHP Cole Hamels (0-1, 11.17).
