Brewers Host Pirates This Weekend

MILWAUKEE, WI (LEARFIELD) The National League Central could become a two-team race soon, if the Milwaukee Brewers can sweep third-place Pittsburgh for three games starting tonight at Miller Park. 

The Brewers have a one-and-a-half game lead over second-place Saint Louis, and they're six games up on the Pirates -- who've lost seven of their last eight.  Fourth-place Cincinnati has dropped to 10-and-a-half back, after losing to Atlanta last night.  The other division contenders, including the Brewers, were off.

  Milwaukee has amazing success over Pittsburgh at Miller Park, with a 53-and-13 record since the start of 2007 while averaging six runs in those games.  This year, the Crew is 5-and-1 against Pittsburgh at home, and 10-and-3 against the Pirates overall. 

The Bucs did get a boost this week when All-Star center-fielder Andrew McCutchen returned to the line-up after having a broken rib.   Pittsburgh is 65-and-62 overall.  The Crew is 71-and-56, with the National League's second-best record. 

Right-hander Yovani Gallardo will start for the Brewers tonight against Pirates lefty Jeff Locke.
