Brewers update

Milwaukee comes to town for a one-game makeup. The Brewers are a scrappy team that always plays hard, but they've hit 73 fewer homers than the Orioles and scored 55 fewer runs. Brewers starter Cal Eldred, who missed the first half of the season with an injury, is 3-4 with a 4.75 ERA in 12 starts, but his ERA on the road is 3.21. That's in character with the entire team. The Brewers are 38-38 on the road this year, but 35-41 at home. Since Aug. 2, they are 13-5 away from home. The Brewers are 6-7 in September. John Jaha leads the team with 108 RBIs and is the first Brewer to reach 100 RBIs since Robin Yount in 1989. The 108 RBIs are the most by a Brewer since Cecil Cooper's 126 in 1983. Dave Nilsson is sixth in the American League with a .331 batting average. Jeff Cirillo is ninth in the league with 172 hits and sixth in the AL with 54 multi-hit games. Closer Mike Fetters has 30 saves, one short of Ken Saunders' 1971 team record. One player not setting any records is Jeromy Burnitz. The Orioles expressed interest in the former Cleveland Indians outfielder, but he is hitting .195 (8-for-41) as a Brewer.
