Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports The Brewers go for their third straight win. After yesterday’s extra-innings win over the Cubs, the Brewers are back on the field tonight to play for a third straight win. Jason Alexander is back on the mound, and he’s started to come back down to earth in the past few appearances. His ERA is up to 3.82 and his FIP is up to 4.35. He had been working out of the bullpen the last few times, but is back in the rotation after Adrian Houser went on the IL. On the other side, Kyle Hendricks starts tonight for the Cubs.

Poll: Brewers midsesaon evaluation

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports The Brewers will hit the midseason point next week, so let’s get a look at what you think about the team. Sunday’s game will be game #81 of the Brewers season. That represents the midpoint of the season. The Brewers lead the division by one game and would be the 3rd seed in the playoffs if the season ended today, and would face the Cardinals in a wild-card series. While they are still on track to make the playoffs for a fifth straight season, there’s still a lot to play. As the midsesason point approaches, how do you feel about the...

It’s only the second time this season that the Brewers are playing an interleague series.

Brewers rally for 6-4 win, split series against Cardinals

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports Tyrone Taylor and Willy Adames provide the big bursts on offense. Box Score After two straight losses, the Brewers needed to salvage a split to remain tied in the NL Central race after the series. They managed to do that, keeping the division race very tight. The game didn’t start well. The second batter of the game, Nolan Gorman, singled to put a runner on base. Then came up Paul Goldschmidt. He doubled down the left field line, but from there it turned into a disaster. The Brewers tried to catch Gorman at the plate, but a bad throw by...

Bally Sports to launch new subscription app on June 23 to watch Brewers games live

Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports The new service should give in-market fans who don’t subscribe to a TV service the ability to stream games.
