May 20th was too...something, so we're playing that game today.

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports


The Brewers and Cubs make up!...a game, that is. Milwaukee's Zach Davies (9-4, 5.03) goes for double digit wins against the Chicago's Mike Montgomery (1-5, 2.80) for the afternoon affair. Should we judge these pitchers by their ERAs or their won/lost records?

Hernan Perez takes third base duties for Travis Shaw today, getting Shaw's wrist a break and giving LBR at bats against a lefty.
