Much of the drama for the Brewers continues to revolve around the starting pitching staff. In his first start after signing an extension with the club, Jason Lawson pitched a gem, working 8 innings, allowing no runs on 7 hits in a 1-0 shutout of the Brooklyn Aces. In his very next start he gave up 2 runs on 6 hits in 4 innings pitched and had to be removed from the game due to a hamstring strain. He has now been placed on the 10-day DL and not expected to pitch again for at least 2 weeks.

The ace of the staff this season, Alex Burley, signed a 3-year extension on May 20th, the same day he suffered his worst loss of the season, giving up 8 runs (4 earned) on 11 hits (6 K, 0 BB) in 7 2/3rds innings pitched as the Brewers were shelled by the Diamond Kings (Oklahoma City) 9-0.
