Brewers look to stay hot against Royals

Jun 22, 2007 - 12:38 PM Kansas City (29-44) at Milwaukee (41-31) 8:05 pm EDT

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) - The Milwaukee Brewers look to continue their winning ways when they host the Kansas City Royals in the opener of a three-game interleague series on Friday.

After a period of struggles following a quick start to the season, the Brewers are surging again with three consecutive wins and seven victories in their last eight games.

Brewers starter Jeff Suppan (7-7, 4.69 ERA) has been ineffective recently, going 0-2 with a 9.56 ERA over his last three outings.

The righthander is coming off his worst start of the season as he allowed nine runs in 4 2/3 innings during Sunday's 10-9 loss to the Minnesota Twins. Oddly enough, he was not pinned with the loss as the Twins rallied to tie the game in the late innings.

Jorge De La Rosa (4-8, 5.33) will be making his first career start against the Brewers - the team he pitched for from 2004-06. The lefthander is looking for his first win since May 13. He pitched in relief during Wednesday's 14-inning loss to the St. Louis Cardinals, allowing the game-winning home run to Ryan Ludwick - the first batter De La Rosa faced.

Former American League foes, the Brewers and Royals have split eight interleague meetings.
