Capuano has a tough act to follow

Apr 3, 2007 - 2:01 PM LA Dodgers (0-1) at Milwaukee (1-0) 8:05 pm EDT

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- Chris Capuano is going to have a tough time following Ben Sheets.

Capuano takes the mound on Tuesday when the Milwaukee Brewers host the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Sheets tossed a two-hitter and retired 22 consecutive batters in a 7-1 win over the Dodgers on Opening Day.

Capuano was named to the American All-Star team last season. But after the break, he won just one game and finished 11-12 with a 4.03 ERA.

Capuano will be opposed by Randy Wolf, who signed a one-year, $8 million deal with the Dodgers in the offseason.

Wolf underwent elbow surgery in July 2005. He came off the disabled list last July 31 and went 4-0 with a 5.56 ERA in 12 starts for the Philadelphia Phillies.

The righthander has not pitched a full season in the majors since the 2003 campaign.
