8/17 Game Thread: Houston (57-63) at Milwaukee (57-63)

We're tied for third place! We're only five games back in the wild card, with only five teams in front of us! None of these are particularly exciting things, analyzed objectively, but as a Brewers fan, I'll take what I can get.

And following a series win against the Pirates in Pittsburgh, anything seems possible.

Tonight we have the possibly actually mostly kinda-sorta healthy Ben Sheets against rookie Jason Hirsh, who will be making his second career start. His first one didn't go so well, but he has had a great season in Round Rock. I'm amazed the Astros waited as long as they did to call him up.

Go Brewers!
