9/27/2018 @ CHICAGO CUBS  
9/28/2018 @ CINCINNATI  
MILWAUKEE: 2017: 86-76, second place.
MANAGER: Craig Counsell (fourth season).
ADDITIONS: OF Lorenzo Cain, OF Christian Yelich, RHP Jhoulys Chacin, RHP Yovani Gallardo, LHP Boone Logan, RHP Matt Albers.
SUBTRACTIONS:2B Neil Walker, OF Lewis Brinson, RHP Matt Garza, RHP Wily Peralta, RHP Carlos Torres, RHP Jared Hughes, RHP Anthony Swarzak.
OUTLOOK: Expectations are up after the Brewers finished one game out of the playoffs in what was supposed to be the second full season of a rebuild. Instead of signing a high-priced starter, General Manager David Stearns added Cain and Yelich as the team's key offseason acquisitions. The new outfielders are former Gold Glove winners who can help out the pitching staff by cutting down on extra-base hits at Miller Park. The rotation should be bolstered later in the season by the return of right-hander Jimmy Nelson, who is recovering from right shoulder surgery in September after getting hurt while diving back to first while running the bases. Whether the Brewers repeat their 2017 success and challenge the Cubs in the NL Central could come down to starting pitching. A trade drawing from the team's outfield depth might help during the season.
PITTSBURGH: 2017 75-87, fourth place
MANAGER Clint Hurdle (seventh season)
ADDITIONS: OF Corey Dickerson, LHP Kyle Crick, RHP Joe Musgrove, RHP Michael Feliz, 3B Colin Moran
SUBTRACTIONS: CF Andrew McCutchen, RHP Gerrit Cole, RHP Daniel Hudson, C Chris Stewart, 1B John Jaso, RHP Joaquin Benoit
OUTLOOK: General Manager Neal Huntington insists the Pirates are not rebuilding, but it certainly looks that way after they flipped franchise cornerstones McCutchen and Cole for less expensive and less proven talent. The Pirates did nothing in free agency, though they were able to grab Dickerson -- an All-Star for Tampa Bay last season -- in February. Dickerson's arrival gives Pittsburgh some stability in the outfield, but the Pirates still have some serious power issues outside of Bell, who finished third in NL Rookie of the Year voting. Pittsburgh finished 29th in the majors in home runs in 2017, and while McCutchen and Dickerson's numbers are comparable, the rest of the lineup isn't exactly imposing. If Marte can put his suspension-marred 2017 behind him, if Polanco and his hamstrings can stay healthy, if Moran proves he can do more than spell Freese at third, and if Taillon, Kuhl and Williams all improve, Pittsburgh could be competitive. That's a lot of "ifs," probably a few too many.
Brewers look to hold off pesky Pirates

If not for the pesky Pittsburgh Pirates, the Milwaukee Brewers might be leading the National League Central, or at least running neck-and-neck with the first-place Chicago Cubs.

The Brewers (87-66) sit second, 2 1/2 games behind the Cubs, in the division and hold the top NL wildcard spot, three games ahead of St. Louis.

But they are just 5-11 against the also-ran Pirates (77-74) going into a three-game weekend series against Pittsburgh at PNC Park.

Overall, Milwaukee has won two of its past three games.

"We feel like we're going the right way," Milwaukee first baseman Jesus Aguilar said. "We've got a lot of things to do."

After the weekend, the Brewers have a series at St. Louis looming.

"We've got nine games to go. We've got a ways to go," Milwaukee manager Craig Counsell said. "There's plenty of baseball left. There's going to be some great moments, there's going to be some tough moments. That's still ahead of us.

"There's a lot left to happen, and I think you're just open to it and ready for it to happen. We've put ourselves in a great position to enjoy the last 10 days of the season."

Pittsburgh has won five straight games, including most recently a sweep of Kansas City with three one-run games, and needs to win five of its remaining 11 in its quest to finish above .500.

"We're all pleased," Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said of the team's play recently, which includes winning 11 of the past 14. "You play the game to win the game, and the games matter."

Last weekend, the Pirates won two of three in Milwaukee.

"We continue to battle," Pirates left fielder Corey Dickerson told AT&T Sportsnet. "The pitchers are starting off throwing strikes and keeping us in the game. We're doing enough to keep us in the game and win the game late or win the game early."

Pittsburgh is winning with a combination of veterans and recent call-ups, offering hope for not only a strong finish but carryover to next year.

"It shows a young team can be consistent," Dickerson said. "A few more pieces, a few more things go right here and there, and you never know where we could be. We have high expectations."

In the series opener Friday, Milwaukee right-hander Jhoulys Chac'n (14-8, 3.54 ERA) is scheduled to face Pittsburgh righty Ivan Nova (9-9, 4.07 ERA).

Chacin will be making his team-leading and career-high 33rd start of the season, sixth against the Pirates. He is 0-3 with a 2.51 ERA in his first five 2018 starts against Pittsburgh.

He comes in on a three-start losing streak overall, with a 3.68 ERA in those games.

Nova is looking for three straight wins for first time this season. He has allowed just one run in 12 innings of work in his past two starts, including a 3-1 win Saturday at Milwaukee.

"You want to finish (the season) strong, no matter who you're facing," Nova said after the win Saturday.

Overall, Nova is 3-2 with a 2.81 ERA in seven career starts against the Brewers.
