A warning to those driving home on 1-94 this evening: The city is about to be infiltrated by crappy drivers. That’s because the Brewers are playing the Cubs tonight, inevitably bringing with them hordes of Illinoisans who have come to (hopefully) witness the Brew Crew wound the Cubbies’ playoff hopes while advancing their own . . .
The Milwaukee Brewers are on fire—well, not literally on fire, but even if they were, it probably wouldn’t slow them down much, especially with newcomer C.C. Sabbathia’s unhittable pitches. Tonight the Crew begins its three-game series against the Houston Astros with a 7:05 p.m. game at Miller Park.
The Milwaukee Brewers continue their series against the Cincinnati Reds tonight with a 6:05 p.m. game at Miller Park. After losing last night the Brewers fall to 5 games behind and lose a game to the Mets in the Wild Card race. We need the win today and tomorrow going into the break. Probable Starters: Edinson Volquez (11-3, 2.36 ERA) vs. Seth McClung (5-4, 4.15 ERA)
