The Milwaukee Brewers (78-61) have another chance to pick up a game on their non-rivals, the Chicago Cubs (81-56) after yesterday’s sedate 4-3 win. The Brewers trail the Cubs by four games, and they have five left with the Northside Nine.

Lefties will dominate the mound, at least to start, tonight. The Cubs go with Mike Montgomery (4-4, 3.82) and Wade Miley (2-2, 2.18) takes the bump for Milwaukee.
