at Peoria, Ariz.

Brewers up next: It's Dave Bush's and Manny Parra's turn to fight for the starting rotation on Saturday, when the Brewers host the Royals at Maryvale Baseball Park at 3:05 p.m. CT. Bush and Parra were both on the list to work five innings or as many 80 pitches in their fourth Spring Training appearances. It turns out that both teams are looking to stretch out their pitchers (Gil Meche is slated to throw six innings for Kansas City) so an agreement was struck to play as many as 10 innings, regardless of the score.
"I don't know if we'll have umpires," Brewers manager Ned Yost said. "But we're going to go into it playing 10."
With Bush and Parra eating all the innings in the "A" game, relievers Salomon Torres, Derrick Turnbow and Eric Gagne were scheduled to work in a Triple-A game against the A's. It's Torres' first game action of Spring Training.
