Jake Arrieta is coming off a no-hitter. What does he have in store for the Brewers?

David Banks-USA TODAY Sports


Well...Tuesday's game started out nicely. Jimmy Nelson worked through five innings in impressive fashion. He ran into some trouble in the fifth and left early in the sixth. But up to that point looked pretty dominant. A late inning pinch hit from Ryan Braun brought them within a run, but it wasn't enough. All-in-all a pretty solid effort, even if a losing one.

Today the Brewers (might) face a tougher challenge in Cubs ace Jake Arrieta. Taylor Jungmann pitches for the Brewers and he's not been steady yet this year. I say the Brewers "might" face a tougher challenge today because they might not get the game in at all as it's been pretty rainy again today. Yesterday's game was rained out though, so I'm sure they'll try everything to get today's game in.
