Every series matters at this point in the season for a baseball team. On Monday, the Brewers started a series against the Cubs where they proceeded to win, 3-2. The second game did not go Milwaukee’s way as they could not develop a rhythm against Jose Quintana and lost, 3-0. Wednesday, the last game of the series, the Brewers recorded 5 runs on 11 hits and won, 5-1. After the Brewers beat the Cubs Wednesday night, Chicago pitcher, Kyle Hendricks, had some words to say about the Crew.
“They’re definitely coming for us. We can feel it.”
As of Thursday night the Brewers are 1.5 games back of the first place Cubs and have their eyes set on the division title. The Brewers have not won the NL Central since 2011 and are in prime position to take over as the top team. For the remainder of Milwaukee’s schedule, they play teams with a combined winning percentage of .471. The rest of the regular season is manageable but it is an uphill battle. However, it is a battle Milwaukee intends on winning.
After a day off Thursday, the Brewers continue their chase Friday night (7:10 CT) against the Pirates as newly acquired, Gio Gonzalez, takes on 2x all-star, Chris Archer.
