>>Milwaukee Tries To Break 3-Game Losing Streak At Philly

(Philadelphia, PA)  —  A day off allowed the Cubs and Cardinals to inch closer to the first-place Milwaukee Brewers in the N-L Central Division standings Thursday.  The Brewers’ lead is down to a half-game over the streaking Cubs and they actually trail by a game in the loss column.  Milwaukee tries to break a three-game losing streak tonight (Friday) in the first game of a weekend series at Philadelphia.  The Brewers need to bounce back from a two-game series sweep by the Indians.  The Phillies have troubles of their own with a two-game losing streak and losses in seven of their last 10 games.  Jhoulys Chacin will be looking for his fifth victory when he starts for Milwaukee in the 6:05 P-M contest.
