Moving to two games up on the rest of the division is the first step in getting it to double digits

Last night's 7-2 win in Phoenix over the Arizona D'Backs (24-17) puts the Milwaukee Brewers (25-17) into position to put a little daylight between themselves and the rest of the Central Division of the National League. Of course, they are also a few days away from being in a huge tangle of teams at the top of the heap. I prefer the former.

Jhoulys Chacin (3-1, 4.00) gets the nod in the ever fluid starting rotation for Milwaukee, and he will be faced by former Brewer (and ever interesting) Zack Greinke (3-1, 3.70) for the Snakes. The Brewers will again be without Ryan Braun in the line-up, but bigger issues face Arizona as A.J. Pollock's injury last night is looking like it could be serious.
