Opening Day for the Brew Crew will be on April 1 at home. That game will be against the Minnesota Twins who will be in town for a three game series. The Brewers immediately follow that series with six games on the road against the Cubs and Cardinals. In the month of April, the Brewers will face the Cubs nine times.
In May, Milwaukee plays only two series against N.L. Central opponents: a 3-game series at home against St. Louis starting on May 11, and a 3-game series on the road against the Cincinnati Reds starting on May 21. Much of the month will be played against the N.L. East in their home parks, specifically Philadelphia, Miami, and Washington.
June brings two 3-game series against the Reds and a home series at the end of the month against the Cubbies. A home series against Pittsburgh is slated into the middle of the month. Arizona comes to town for four games near the beginning of the month, and the Brewers will see the Rockies seven times in the month of June.
Pittsburgh and Cincinnati are the teams Milwaukee will face a lot in July. The Brewers will play seven games against both teams. The Brewers head to the Big Apple to face the Mets starting on July 5, and the Chicago White Sox come to town later in the month.
August will be N.L. Central heavy. The Brewers will face Pittsburgh six times, the Cubs four times, Cincinnati three times, and St. Louis three times. Milwaukee will head to Target Field later in the month to take on the Twins. San Fransisco will come to town early in the month, and Milwaukee will head to the “City by the Bay” to end August and begin September.
Craig-tember means a run to the playoffs, right? Well let’s hope. In what could very well be the decisive factor in the N.L. Central race, the Brewers will have to face off against the Cardinals ten times during the month of September. The Cubs come to town for their last series against the Brew Crew of the regular season on September 17. The final home series of the season will take place against the Mets starting on September 24. The final series of the season will be on the road against the seemingly always formidable Los Angeles Dodgers.
