Brewers host Reds, lead in Central gone (SPORTS)



A big series in the National League Central opens Monday night in Milwaukee as the first place Milwaukee Brewers (54-45) host the fourth place Cincinnati Reds (51-47).

The Brewers had a 6 ½ game lead in the National League Central heading into July, but a stretch of 13-losses in their last 16-games has caused that to disappear.  Milwaukee enters tonight tied with the St. Louis Cardinals (54-45) on top of the division. 


The Pittsburgh Pirates (52-46) have vaulted into third in the division, 1 ½ games out, after sweeping three from Colorado over the weekend.  The Reds were swept by the Yankees this weekend and fell to fourth despite being just 2 ½ games out of first.

Cincinnati has owned Milwaukee so far in 2014.  The Reds have taken seven of ten so far with nine more games remaining the rest of the season.  Here are the pitching probable:

Monday – 7:10 First Pitch, 6:35 pregame on 1150 WHBY
     Milwaukee:  Wily Peralta (10-6, 3.72 ERA)
     Cincinnati: Mat Latos (2-1, 2.79 ERA)
Tuesday – 7:10 First Pitch, 6:35 pregame on 1150 WHBY
     Milwaukee: Jimmy Nelson (1-1, 5.40 ERA)
     Cincinnati: Homer Bailey (8-5, 4.21 ERA)
Wednesday - 1:10 First Pitch, 12:35 pregame on 1150 WHBY
     Milwaukee Kyle Lohse (10-4, 3.16 ERA)
     Cincinnati: Mike Leake (7-8, 3.63 ERA)

As the Brewers and Reds take the field Monday, Pittsburgh opens a three-game series with the L.A Dodgers while St. Louis is off before a quick two-game set with Tampa Bay begins Tuesday.
