The Milwaukee Brewers (16-12) have generated almost no offense in three straight losses to the Chicago Cubs (14-10) and fallen into a three-way tie for second in the NL Central behind the first place Pittsburgh Pirates, a half game back.

Perhaps it's the Cubs' pitching. I'm sure that's what the national media is saying (I haven't checked; it's too depressing). The Brewer bats try and salvage the final game of the four game set at Wrigley field against Cubs' starter Tyler Chatwood (1-3, 3.74), and counter with Zach Davies (2-2, 4.45). The Brewers' pitching has been very good all season, so it would be nice if the offense would give them a little help.
