The Milwaukee Brewers, which hold one of the two Wild Card spots in the National League, are looking to trim a four-game deficit in the NL Central during the final two games of a three-game set against the division-leading Cubs.


Following a 4-3 Brewers win Monday night, Cubs pitcher Cole Hamels made comments deflecting off his team's loss by saying the matchup with the Brewers isn’t much of a rivalry, pointing out there are mostly Cubs fans in the stands at Miller Park.

Oh boy, tonight should be fun!

A matchup of two veteran lefties in Mike Montgomery and Wade Miley could lead to plenty of runs, and thus lots of cheering, on both sides.


The Cubs' Montgomery, in his first start off the DL, gave up eight hits and four runs over 4 1/3 innings and is facing a lineup led by Christian Yelich, who is 13-for-32 with six extra-base hits (four homers) and 16 RBI over his last seven games. Lorenzo Cain, Jesus Aguilar, and Ryan Braun also mash lefties historically, so that further increases the odds of seeing a high-scoring contest.

Miley has a 4.47 ERA in seven career starts versus the Cubs, and will be put to the test against a Cubs lineup that recently added former-MVP Kris Bryant back into the mix. 


Miller Park is sure to be a crazy scene tonight, and whether the fans are rooting for the Cubs or the Brewers, both teams should potentially put up enough runs to entertain the masses.
