Live Blog: Baseball at Valparaiso - Horizon League Opener

Welcome to Valparaiso, Indiana, for today's game between Milwaukee and Valparaiso...

We arrived a few hours ago and hopped right off the bus. I received a tour of the facility from Valpo's SID, Ryan, and it's quite nice ... team room, TV room, kitchen, laundry, training, batting cages, locker room, you name it.

Game time is 3 pm, which is about 15 minutes away. The Crusaders are 7-11 and off to a 2-1 start in league play.

Milwaukee's line-up will be: Andy Gerhartz (2b), Cole Kraft (SS), Josh Groves (C), Ben Long (DH), Shawn Wozniak (1B), Shaun Wegner (RF), Tim Patzman (LF), Paul Hoenecke (3B) and Doug Dekoning (CF).

On the mound fort UWM, senior Brad Lusti, off to a slow 0-2 start in 5 appearances.
Valpo counters with Jon Gulbransen, carrying a 3-2 record and 5.28 ERA.
