4/24 Dempster vs. Brewers

Ryan Dempster definitely gives the Brewers trouble. He’s now 13-3 in his career against Milwaukee after Friday’s win. He also beat them April 12 at Wrigley.

“Normally, he’s got a real good slider against our right-handed hitters,” Milwaukee manager Ken Macha said of Dempster after Friday’s game. “He’s got a real good split-finger [fastball] too, and tonight some of the left-handed hitters were saying they had a difficult time picking up the rotation on that.

“It’s just my feeling that we’re getting closer to breaking through on this thing, OK?” Macha said. “I don’t know how long it’s going to take, but we scored some runs off him down in Chicago, and tonight Prince [Fielder] comes up and hits a ball off the top of the wall and Rickie [Weeks] had tremendous at-bats against him. I think we’re getting close to breaking through, we just have to stay confident and have that feeling that we’re going to get him.”

The Cubs are 3-1 this year against the Brewers with two more games this weekend.

“For some reason, the Cubs are giving us a lot of trouble this year,” Milwaukee’s Gregg Zaun said. “It seems like every time we make a mistake out over the plate, they’re capitalizing on it.”
