Ryan Dempster will make his second spring start on Saturday when the Cubs travel to Maryvale Baseball Park in Phoenix to play the Brewers. Dempster, who has a career 15-5 record against the Brewers, probably won’t show his best stuff. He’ll be facing Milwaukee in the second series of the season.
It’ll be Cubs manager Dale Sveum’s first showdown with his former team. Said Sveum: “It’ll be fun facing them. I’m looking forward to it, to see the guys and say hello. We’ll try to beat their butts, but it’ll be good to see everybody.” The game will be broadcast on MLB.TV and Gameday Audio beginning at 2:05 p.m. CT.
