The Milwaukee Brewers need to do a few more things - big things like hitting, little things like making more defensive plays than the Brewers, obvious things like not giving up multiple runs from the starting pitching - to regain some mojo as they head back into the Central Division and a mid-week set in Cincy.

Braves' starter Julio Teheran has not been as effective this year as he has for his career, with an ERA of 4.76 and a 6-5 W-L record. But the current edition of the Brewers has only amassed seven career at bats against him. Eric Sogard has the lone hit. Zach Davies goes for his eighth win against four losses, but his 5.40 ERA is troubling.

Hard to believe we are within four games of the halfway point of the 2017 season.

1. Eric Sogard (L) 2B
2. Eric Thames (L) 1B
