It’s the halfway point of the Brewers’ season and it’s AARON ASHBY DAY

Syndication: Appleton Danny Damiani/USA TODAY NETWORK-Wisconsin

Today marks the halfway point in the Brewers’ 2021 Championship Season, but it’s notable for another reason — the MLB debut of Aaron Ashby.

The lefty will take the mound this afternoon as the Brewers look to close out their mathematical first half with a sweep over the Chicago Cubs. Another win would widen the Brewers’ NL Central division lead to 6 games. Milwaukee’s lead over the second-place team in their division is already the largest in baseball.

The Cubs will counter with Jake Arrieta. First pitch is at 1:10 p.m. CDT.
