Without actually announcing it, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke indicated Monday that right-hander Yovani Gallardo will be his Game 1 pitcher in the division series, no matter the opponent or location. Gallardo originally was listed as the probable starter Wednesday for the season finale against Pittsburgh. Earlier Monday, that was changed to "TBA" (to be announced). In his pregame briefing with reporters, Roenicke said he wasn't sure who would start Wednesday but that it wouldn't be Gallardo. That meant he had decided to pitch Gallardo in Game 1, which almost certainly means right-hander Zack Greinke will go in Game 2. "Right now, I don't think 'Yo' is going to pitch (Wednesday)," said Roenicke. "We're still talking about it; we're still looking at it. Right now, I would say no, he's not going to. "That answers the question: What's more important, the home field or setting up the playoffs? That's why we decided to do that with him."
