The Cubs nearly snapped the Brewers run atop the NL Central yesterday. However a 3-1 loss to the White Sox kept Milwaukee atop the division and ran their tally of consecutive days leading the NL Central to 60. It has been a run that very few expected for the Brewers this season.
The Cubs fell to (51-47) after their loss Monday. The Brewers are (53-48) and did not play Monday. They open up a three-game series against the Washington Nationals this evening at 6:05 PM. On Friday ‘The Crew’ will return to Miller Park after a 10-game road trip that has not been very kind to the Brewers.
