Brewers update

After winning nine of 13, the Orioles return to face the Milwaukee Brewers for a quick three-game set before departing for Oakland to play five games in four days. The Orioles swept three from the Brewers at County Stadium last week. Milwaukee finished its homestand 0-7 after getting swept by Boston over the weekend. The Brewers were outscored 49-19 in those seven games, and gave up 15 homers. The Orioles are in homer-hitting mode, with two or more homers in each of the last nine games. The Brewers, whose seven-game winless streak is a season high, still are hitting well, although their pitching has come apart. Ben McDonald (10-7) is not scheduled to face his former teammates after getting hammered by the Orioles last week. Tonight's and tomorrow's starters, Karl and D'Amico, also were hit hard by the Orioles last week. The Orioles scored 14 earned runs in 11 1/3 innings off the two in Milwaukee. Offensively, six Brewers are hitting at least 23 points above their career averages, led by Dave Nilsson, whose .353 average is 89 points higher than his career mark. The Brewers also are on pace to set team records for hits, doubles and runs.
