Brewers Hope To Extend Division Lead

The Brewers haven’t been lighting up the scoreboard lately and haven’t won a series since taking two games from the Tampa Bay Rays at the end of June.

They split the first two games of the series 3-2 in ten innings but lost in dramatic fashion in Game 3 as the Giants broke a tie in the eighth inning to score on a bases-loaded walk, which was the difference in the game.

Willy Adames is the home run leader for the Brewers with 18, Andrew McCutchen is the best in batting average at .257, and Rowdy Tellez is the team’. ‘s RBI leader with 55 on the season.

Corbin Burns is the ace of the Milwaukee pitching staff with seven wins, a 2.14 ERA, and 144 strikeouts, which is second in the Majors. Jason Alexander takes the hill for the Brewers today and is 2-1 with a 4.73 ERA.

However, they’ll have difficulty catching up to the Dodgers, who again seem unbeatable since winning nine of their last ten games. They’re hoping to win tonight to take the series from Milwaukee.
