Phillies Coming to Milwaukee

Coming off of a huge series win vs. the Cubs, the Brewers welcome Philadelphia to Milwaukee starting tonight at 7:10. After struggling vs. the AL Central, the Brewers have put together back-to-back series wins and are looking for number three this weekend. Suter takes the mound tonight vs. Arrieta. Followed by Guerra vs. Efflin on Saturday, and Anderson vs. Nola on Sunday. Entering tonight’s game the Brewers have a 1.5 game lead over the Cubs.

NL Central W L Winning % GB
Brewers 41 27 .603
Cubs 38 27 .585 1.5
Cardinals 36 30 .545 4.0
Pirates 33 35 .485 8.0
Reds 25 43 .368 16.0

The Brewers are a little unlucky facing the Phillies best three pitchers this season, with their ace Aaron Nola throwing Sunday. They are just missing Vince Velasquez who they roughed up for 9 hits 10 runs in 3.2 innings last time they faced him.

With Brad Miller now in AAA playing shortstop, I can only imagine that Arcia and/or Sogards time in the MLB will be pretty short lived. Both have been awful at the plate this season and an upgrade is needed.

Brad Miller, who will hit around .240-.250, has some serious pop in his bat and can be a good contributor off the bench. Miller can also play SS, 2nd, and 1st.
