The Chicago Cubs (37-25) and their oh so polite fans invade Miller Park tonight to face the Milwaukee Brewers (39-26) in an early-mid season battle for first place. Lefty Jose Quintana (6-4, 4.20) has had little trouble handling the Brewers, shutting them out over thirteen innings in two starts. To be fair, the Brewers have been shut out in five of their seven losses to the Cubbies, so maybe it's the team and not the pitcher. Junior Guerra (3-4, 2.83) will try and keep Milwaukee in first place.

Hernan Perez gives Travis Shaw a day off with a start at third.

    Oh sure they will; probably a five spot in the first.
