Game Thread #133: Milwaukee Brewers (74-58) @ Chicago Cubs (70-62)

Brewers look to win the rubber match against rivals to the south

MLB: Milwaukee Brewers at Chicago Cubs Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports

Brandon Woodruff takes on Kyle Hendricks as the Brewers look to take two out of three against the Cubs. With a four-game lead ahead of this Cubs team for the top spot in the NL Central, the Brewers need to take advantage of opportunities like these to solidify their playoff position.

Christian Yelich leads off and starts in left field, while Sal Frelick hits fourth and starts in center field. William Contreras starts at catcher, Carlos Santana returns to the lineup after missing a pair of games with an ankle injury, and Rowdy Tellez starts at DH.

The first pitch is at 1:20 p.m. on Bally Sports Wisconsin and 620 WTMJ. For even more Brewers content, check out the Crew Talk podcast on both Apple and Spotify and on Twitter @CrewTalkFFSN.
