Game Thread #44: Milwaukee Brewers (25-18) @ Chicago Cubs (21-20)

After an unexpected day off, the Brewers get back to action against their rivals to the south.

Caylor Arnold-USA TODAY Sports

After two gloomy, rainy days in Chicago, the sun is back out today and Your First Place Milwaukee Brewers look to take a weather-shortened weekend series against the defending World Series champions.

The Brewers gave us a bit of a Sunday surprise today, activating Ryan Braun from the disabled list. He's back in the lineup this afternoon, giving the Milwaukee lineup a boost -- if they needed one -- against Jake Arrieta. Chase Anderson makes the start for the Brewers.

First pitch is at 1:20 p.m. CDT, with plenty of viewing options -- both FS Wisconsin and WGN will have this one, as well as MLB Network for those of you living out of either market.
