In three leagues in the minors this year he combined to 92.2 innings of work with an ERA of 3.59. In his career he has pitched one inning against the Brewers holding them to a hit and a walk. The Brewers have the following numbers against Jenry:

Ramirez 1-3, 2B
Morgan 1-2
Braun 1-1
Gomez 0-1
Hart 0-1

Shaun Marcum gets the nod for the Brew Crew today. On the season he is 5-4 over 17 starts and 102 innings of work while posting a 3.71 ERA. In his last three games he has pitched 14 innings and has allowed 20 hits and 11 ER. Last year Shaun held the Mets to one earned run over 13 innings of work. The Mets have the following numbers against Marcum:

Torres 1-7, 2B
