The Brewers hope to finish the road trip with a third straight series win, as well as even the season series against the Cubs.

Putting together a .500 record on the road is generally considered to be a good mark for a MLB team. The Brewers have not only done that, they've gone well past that on this road trip. With a win today, they will start the season 7-2 on the road, and that's something to be proud of. Not only that, but they can take a series from the Cubs at Wrigley with a win today.

It's another rematch in today's game as Tommy Milone and Kyle Hendricks repeat the matchup from April 8. In that game, the Brewers got four runs off of Hendricks in six innings, with two of the five hits off him going for home runs (Jonathan Villar and Jett Bandy had the home runs). However, Tommy Milone wasn't any better, allowing four runs on nine hits in four innings. This could be Milone's last start, with Matt Garza set to come back from the DL soon.

Here are the starting lineups for today's game:

There are plenty of ways to watch today's game. It will be available on Fox Sports Wisconsin as usual, as well as on WGN. If you are outside the Cubs market, it will also be available on MLB Network. You can also tune into the radio broadcast.

NOTE: The start of today's game has been delayed due to rain. No official start time has been announced.
