Game Time: Brewers vs. Team Canada


Game Time: Brewers vs. Team Canada

CREATED Mar. 5, 2013

After taking Monday off, the Milwaukee Brewers will get a taste of the World Baseball Classic on Tuesday when they host team Canada at Maryvale Baseball Park. Making things more interesting is that the Brewers have three players who will suit up for team Canada today. Relief pitchers John Axford and Jim Henderson and infielder Taylor Green have all temporarily traded in their Brewers uniforms for one with a maple leaf.

With a game time temperature of 75 degrees, it's a partly cloudy, slightly breezy afternoon at Maryvale. Chris Narveson will get the start for the Brewers today, his second of the spring. Team Canada will counter with RHP Jameson Taillon (Pirates AA).
