The Chicago Cubs and Milwaukee Brewers are in a tight race for the National League Central title.
The Cubs (84-67) are currently 3 1/2 games ahead of the Brewers (81-71) with less than two weeks to go in the regular season. The Brewers are also aiming to dislodge the Colorado Rockies (82-70) for the second wildcard berth in the NL.
They actually had a chance to overtake the Rockies on Wednesday but they were upset by the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-6. Adam Frazier blasted a two-run homer off Brewers closer Adam Frazier with two outs in the ninth inning. The loss snapped Milwaukee's three-game winning run.
Starting for the Brewers in this duel is Zach Davies (17-9), who took their 4-7 loss at Miami last Saturday after giving up eight hits and six runs in just four innings. Jesus Aguilar and Domingo Santana are out to impress again for Milwaukee after hitting solo homers in their last game.
The Cubs are also aiming to bounce back after their season-best seven-game winning streak was snapped by the Tampa Bay Rays on Wednesday.
Designated hitter John Jay drove in Chicago's only run as they suffered a 1-8 beating in Florida. Tasked to lead the defending World Series champions back on track is right-hander Jake Arrieta (14-9), who is scheduled to make his first start since September 4. Leading Chicago's offense are Anthony Rizzo and Kris Bryant.
The Brewers lead the Cubs 8-7 in their head-to-head series this season.
