Yost predicts pitcher will 'miss a turn'

LOS ANGELES -- Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Ben Sheets missed
Tuesday night's scheduled start against the Los Angeles Dodgers
because of a viral infection and inflammation in his inner ear.

"Last night, he was real dizzy, to the point of nausea,"
manager Ned Yost said before batting practice. "He's been in with
the doctor since 10 or 11 this morning, and they were doing tests
on him to find out what it was. My guess is, he'll miss a turn."

Sheets missed a rematch with Jeff Weaver, whom he beat 3-1 with
seven innings of four-hit ball and eight strikeouts last Thursday
in Milwaukee. Sheets, who had an 18-strikeout game in Atlanta last
month, is 5-3 with a 2.71 ERA and has not walked a batter in six of
his 11 starts.

Doug Davis, Wednesday's scheduled starter, faced the Dodgers on
three days' rest.
