The Team: Milwaukee Brewers

Last weekend, the Phillies left Milwaukee on a high note. They handed the Brewers a 5-2 loss on Sunday afternoon. The victory started a four game losing streak for the Brew Crew.

They scored nine runs in four losses in Pittsburgh. After being on the wrong side of a four game sweep, they are clinging to a one game lead in the NL Central. The surging Pirates and Cubs are breathing down their necks.

The offense has been their strongest puzzle piece throughout the first half of the season, but cooled off immensely over the four game stretch in Pittsburgh. The struggles were highlighted in Sunday’s contest when they stranded runners in all of the sixth, seventh, and eighth innings.

The Brewers are coming into Philadelphia with the hopes that Citizen Bank Park can turn around their offensive luck. They will need to fire up the offense if they want to rebuild their division lead to comfortable number.
