On Tap:

The Brewers and Reds wrap up their series with afternoon baseball in Milwaukee. Zack Greinke (3-1) and Johnny Cueto (4-0) will match up in what looks to be a good pitcher's duel. Let's see what the bats have to say about that. Today's game gets under way at 12:10 p.m. CDT.

The Cardinals and Diamondbacks finish their series out in the desert tonight at 8:40 p.m. CDT. Kyle Lohse (4-1) will start for the Cards. Young lefty Wade MIley (3-0) looks to remain perfect on the year with another win for the D-backs.

There is also afternoon baseball on the schedule at Wrigley Field. Paul Maholm (3-2) will take the mound for the Cubs against Tim Hudson (1-0) and the rest of the Atlanta Braves. Game time is scheduled for 1:20 p.m. CDT.

The Pirates and Nationals continue their series in Pittsburgh with today's 6:05 p.m. CDT game. Erik Bedard (2-4) will start for the Bucs against Ross Detwiler (3-1) and the Nats.
