As such, Kyle Lohse (9-4) and Matt Garza (6-6), the Brewers two most effective starters recently, would start the first two games after the break at Washington.

Stephen Strasburg and Gio Gonzalez are scheduled to start the first two games for the Nationals. Yovani Gallardo would start the third game of the series against Doug Fister.

"We'll probably stay pretty much on line with it," Roenicke said. "That puts Kyle into starting it off and that's probably what we'll do."
