Let's get back on track, gentlemen.

The Brewers will need some better relief pitching in this series.

The Pittsburgh Pirates' fast start has now settled back into a 35-36 record, but they played the Milwaukee Brewers (42-29) very well in taking two of three from the Crew at Miller Park earlier this season. The Brewers look to return the favor in Pittsburgh...or more than return the favor.

Jhoulys Chacin (6-1, 3.32) starts for the Brewers and will face the Bucs' Trevor Williams (5-4, 4.38).
