The contest will be the start of a three-match interleague series.

Milwaukee is coming off a three-game series against the National League West-leading Arizona Diamondbacks that has lost two of three, scoring one run in each loss.

“We have to do better than that,” brewers manager Craig Counsell said after Wednesday’s 5-1 loss in the series finale

On Wednesday, Milwaukee’s cleanup hitter Rowdy Tellez entered June without a home run, hitting .159.

Willie Adams is batting .196 this month after going 0-4 at the No. 3 spot on Wednesday. After hitting 31 home runs last season, he’s stuck at 10 since June 7.

The consul said, “Look, there are people in the middle of the Order that we need to be aggressive with, there’s no question about that.” “We will be angry with them. We just have to keep practicing, the routine, the work, keep at it and have faith that they will come out of it.”

Wade will give Miley the ball in the opening match of the Australian series and the experienced left-hander should have a good memory of Progressive Field. Miley threw a no-hitter there on May 7, 2021, while pitching for the Cincinnati Reds.

Miley (4-2, 3.28 ERA) pitched five shutout innings in a 5-0 win against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Saturday, his first after spending a month on the injured list with a lat strain.

Counsell said, “I thought maybe he was a little strong in the first inning, but then he really settled down and pitched really well.”

Miley is 2-4 with a 3.97 ERA in nine starts against Cleveland in his career.

the guardians Made it four wins in a row after completing a three-game sweep of the visiting Oakland A’s with a 6-1 win on Thursday afternoon

They plan to start right-hander Shane Bieber (5-4, 3.51 ERA) in the series opener.

The 2020 AL Cy Young Award winner should be eager to bounce back after being tagged for three home runs in a 6-3 loss to the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

The score was tied 2–2 when Bieber came on in the eighth. Over the next four at-bats, he gave up a leadoff homer and a two-run shot, and his night was over.

Bieber said, “I expect myself to go deep no matter what the situation is.” “I found myself in a good position to do that (against the Diamondbacks) and try to get a little bit more and get something for it. So, it’s going to happen, and through a long, healthy career, you Some are going to be disappointing, and it’s certainly there.”

Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said Bieber was one of the toughest pitchers among the major players.

“When you’re going up against a pitcher of Bieber’s caliber, and with the quality stuff he has, you’re just trying to figure out how you’re going to go about it and finish your day, and hopefully That he won’t do that is the best stuff he has,” Lovullo said.

Bieber made a career-best start against Milwaukee when he went unearned in five innings while striking out 10 during a 4–1 victory on September 6, 2020 in Cleveland.
