Do or die. Crunch time. Insert your cliche here.

It feels as if the Brewers need to sweep the Cubs this weekend to stay in the race for the central division crown. No pressure. Jimmy Nelson (11-6, 3.59) takes the weight of Brewer Nation on his back tonight and faces John Lackey (11-10, 4.74). Makes you scratch your head.
