Dempster has thrown well all year so far, though he again walked way too many in his last outing. He's already beaten the Brewers once this month. Jason Kendall hits him hard -- 13-for-28 lifetime (.464).

Similarly, Jeff Suppan has a win against the Cubs earlier this month. Lifetime he's got a very good record in Wrigley Field -- 4-2, 3.36 in nine starts -- and one Cub, Derrek Lee, pound him (18-for-39, 6 doubles, 4 HR, 9 walks, .462/.563/.923).

Similar pitchers on a nicer weather night than last night. Go Cubs!

Once again for you out of towners, a WCIU game is on ESPN and so available nationally. There's no Milwaukee area TV so I'm pretty sure everyone gets this. See also today's MLB.com Mediacenter. There are only six more WCIU games, all Mondays or Wednesdays, which are days ESPN does games, so there's a fair chance many of them could be picked up by ESPN. The next one is Wednesday, May 14.
