Fiers called up to make start tomorrow

(WNFL)- Right-hander Mike Fiers will come up from the minors to start for the Brewers tomorrow. Manager Ron Roenicke said Fiers will fill in for Matt Garza, who's out with a strained left oblique muscle. This will be Fiers' second stint with Milwaukee this season, and his first as a starter. He went 0-and-1 in four relief outings in June with a 2.57 ERA. At Triple-"A" Nashville, Fiers is 8-5 with a 2.55 ERA, with 129 strikeouts while giving up just under one walk-and-hit per inning. Roenicke says he wants to see if Fiers can re-create his spark from two years ago, when he won a lot of games early for the Brewers and then faded to go 9-10. The skipper was also considering Marco Estrada for tomorrow. Estrada tossed three innings of relief on Wednesday night in a Brewers' loss to San Francisco. Ex-Brewer Zack Greinke will start for the Dodgers against Fiers.
