The NL Central first place Milwaukee Brewers head west today to battle the San Francisco Giants. It should be a closely watched game as both teams need a series win to pump up their playoff standings. The Brewers to put some space between them and the St. Louis Cardinals, and the Giants to cut down on the space between them and the Dodgers, and to break away in the Wild Card spot.
The Brewers are coming off a series loss and two game losing streak to the San Diego Padres, while the Giants are coming off a three game winning streak and series win against the Colorado Rockies.
Rest assured, the Giants are not going to be content with a wild card spot this season. Their goal is still to win the NL West and a series win against a good Brewers team will go a long way in getting them there.

Angels Light Wave
The Los Angeles Angels are jerks. But they’re from LA, so I guess it’s to be expected. What do you think? At least one CSN announcer for the Oakland Athletics wasn’t happy. Check out Brodie Brazil’s Facebook post last night. Of course, this isn’t a new thing for the Angels. What do you think?
Not Giants related also, but probably the weirdest thing you’ll read today.
