(WNFL)- The Milwaukee Brewers hope to take advantage of a struggling Tim Lincecum tonight, when the Crew opens a three-game home series against San Francisco. The Giants' ace lost two of his last three starts, with an ERA of close to nine in those outings. The right-hander Lincecum is coming off a no-decision against Pittsburgh last Wednesday in which he gave up five runs in three-and-a-third innings. Still, Lincecum is 2-0 in his last three starts against the Brewers. He's 9-7 overall this year, with a 4.21 ERA. Young right-hander Jimmy Nelson will go for Milwaukee. His start was pushed back a day due to a blister in his middle throwing finger. Nelson is 1-2 with a 4.30 ERA. He has dropped his last two decisions, but the Milwaukee offense has only give him three total runs of support in his last three starts. Both the Brewers and Giants are 61-51. The Crew remains atop the National League Central Division by a game over Saint Louis, and 1.5 games over Pittsburgh. San Francisco is a game-and-a-half behind the LA Dodgers in the NL West.
