MLB Game #16: Brewers vs. CubsAfter work, we are headed to Wrigley Field to see our two teams inch closer to a division title and a wild card spot. The Chicago Cubs are coming off two outstanding pitching performances. Of course Carlos Zambrano threw a no-hitter on Sunday, and Ted Lilly took a no-hitter into the seventh inning yesterday. Plus, the Brewers will be playing their first game in the post-Yost era. Brewers manager, Ned Yost, was fired on Monday.
This evening's pitching match-up should be fantastic. The Brewers ace, CC Sabathia (15-8), will square off against Ryan Dempster (15-6).
As usual, the Cubs and Brewers are still atop the National League Central Division standings.
