Logically I know it's just one game, but this one just feels more important. Brewers are hot, chance to finish the first half strong and add to the division lead, and get revenge for the postponed sun-out game. Here's hoping we get good Zach Davies.

I am not Shea Vucinich

All games against the Cubs are important regardless of the situation. Play-off implications aside... its about beating the Cubs!

This is a statement game for both clubs.

I haven't been this excited for a single regular season game in a long while.

Come On Brewers!

Let's make the Cubs pay for their "imaginary rainout game" shananigans.

I kind of agree. This feels like a boxing weigh in to me. One underdog fighter who people are starting to believe has a chance and the favorite who is starting to get a little annoyed of the pesty underdog. This is the hype fest before the fight (second half).

This game has a little September feel to it to me.

While it's only one game out of the 75 or so left, this is a big one as far as standings go. 2.5 games is a small lead - 4.5 starts to feel pretty big. With only the one game here, it's a real chance to create some space and maybe put some fear in the Cubs about catching us (if that's not there already that is).

A win today guarantees we're still in first place through the All-Star break too. It will feel a lot better sitting with that through the off days than to let it slip away just beforehand.

To be fair, one more win on any day before the ASB guarantees we're in 1st place at the ASB, but I agree that this one does feel important.

Montgomery has good numbers but seems like he's had a little more trouble lately, and we're throwing all righties at him so hoping we can do some damage.

Go Crew!

Nice double-play by the defense already.

Sounds like the ump is dropping an f bomb every time he calls a strike

Lots of nice ABs so far today, even some of the ones ending in strikeouts.

Didn't think Braun got enough of that one. Just kept carrying - wind maybe helped it. And wow, Aguilar got unlucky there. Couple feet from a HR, also hit the one area with no ivy and came right back to him. Definitely could have been more than a 1b but good base running as he would have been dead at second.

Come on guys, let's put up a crooked number here!!

Not much fun to be a lefty against this lineup.

Side note:

How rare is a one-game series during the regular season in MLB?

I've been a Brewer fan for about 35 years and can't remember one.

Certainly feels more important then a full 3 game series.

I seem to remember a few years ago the Brewers playing 1 game somewhere on a Monday to start a road trip. St. Louis maybe?
