Top Two Teams In National League Square Off At Miller Park This Weekend

The Milwaukee Brewers (63-52) survived their first tough test taking two of three from the San Francisco Giants. Now all focus turns to another NL-West team the Los Angeles Dodgers (66-50). The Dodgers and Brewers are the top two teams in the NL-standings and in first place in their respected divisions.

Wily Peralta gave the Brewers plenty of momentum entering Friday after picking up his Major League leading 14th win of the season Thursday. It was the Brewers 13th quality start in the last 16 games despite holding a 9-7 record in that span.

Entering Friday, Milwaukee has been in first place for 125 straight days, the longest in team history.

The Brewers will turn to Kyle Lohse (11-6, 3.40 ERA) in game one against Roberto Hernendez in a 7:10 first pitch. Lohse looks to bounce back after a rough outing against the St. Louis Cardinals last Saturday. Hernendez was acquired off waivers from the Philadelphia Phillies Thursday. These two pitchers faced one another before the All=Star break and Hernendez won that matchup.

Saturday and Sunday will be the even tougher tests because former Brewer Zack Greinke and one of the best pitchers in the game today left-hander Clayton Kershaw will pitch for the Dodgers. Mike Fiers will make his first start of the season Saturday for the injured Matt Garza and Jimmy Nelson gets the start in the finale.

The St. Louis Cardinals are one game back and the Pittsburgh Pirates are 1 1/2 games back in the NL-Central standings.
