MLB 2014 Game #10: Brewers vs. Cubs

Unless something changes, I will make my final trip to Wrigley Field this season for tonight's game between the Milwaukee Brewers (73-65, .529) and Chicago Cubs (63-76, .453). Of the 10 games I've attended this season, this will be the fourth time I've seen these two teams play each other. I've seen them twice at Wrigley Field and twice at Miller Park.

With the regular season dwindling, the Brewers find themselves in the pennant race. Sitting in the National League Central's second slot, the Brewers picked the wrong time to slump. They are currently trailing the division-leading St. Louis Cardinals (75-63, .543) by two games. On the other hand, the Cubs are buried in last place and bringing up players from the minor leagues to take a look at future talent. Some of the team's young stars are going to spend some time resting on the bench. Anthony Rizzo is out indefinitely with lower back pain, and Starlin Castro suffered a sprained left ankle after sliding into home plate last night.

Tonight, the Brewers will send Matt Garza (7-7, 3.58 ERA), who is fresh off of the disabled list, to the mound. The Cubs will attempt to complete the three-game series sweep and answer with Kyle Hendricks (5-1, 1.91 ERA).
