Back to Milwaukee's Miller Park this evening. Tonight, we have tickets for a National League Central Division match-up between the Cincinnati Reds and Milwaukee Brewers.

The Reds travel to Milwaukee for the first time this season. Currently, they find themselves in second place (14-13), only two-and-a-half games behind the St. Louis Cardinals. They are currently on a one-game winning streak following a win against the Pittsburgh Pirates, and they are 6-4 in their last 10 games. They will send Bronson Arroyo (1-1, 3.03 ERA) to the mound this evening.

With a record of 12-16, the Brewers are currently tied with the Pittsburgh Pirates in fourth place, five games in back of the Cardinals. They have hit hard times as of late winning only three of their last 10 games, and are currently on a two-game losing streak. They will counter with Yovani Gallardo (1-3, 5.79 ERA) this evening.
