Teddy Higuera (3-0, 2.74) vs. Richard Dotson (1-2, 6.38)
Milwaukee Brewers: 12-0 (1st in AL East)
Chicago White Sox: 4-8 (5th in AL West)
While people will queue up throughout Southeastern Wisconsin for free George Webb’s, the Brewers will head south of the border to face the hated White Sox at Comiskey Park. There, the Crew will try to tie and set the Major League record for consecutive wins to start the season.
At 12 after their Easter Miracle at County Stadium, Dr. No, Juan Nieves, will try to keep the streak alive and become only the second pitcher in Major League history to throw back-to-back no hitters. Seamheads know that Johnny Vander Meer is the only hurler to accomplish the feat.
Crew fans will just take a win, which would tie the 1982 ——- Braves’ MLB record of 13.
If they get that, the pressure will be on Mark Ciardi to keep it going on April 22. For Brewers fans, it would be sweet to vanquish the ghost of the Braves and to do it in Illinois against the White Sox. Party on.
If the Crew gets to 14, then they have Higuera on the hill two days later for No. 15. That would make five consecutive series sweeps. That would be amazing, and at the rate the Crew is going, not too surprising.
