Brewers in for 4-game series after Sunday Night Baseball in Chicago

The Phillies had a much longer rest than the Brewers did in preparation for this series. The Brewers were playing last night on Sunday Night Baseball in Chicago. The Brewers ended up losing to the Cubs by a 4-1 score last night, then had to fly out to Philly and get there for tonight’s scheduled 7:05 PM start. Such as the life of a baseball player. Of course the surroundings are very posh and you should be able to sleep at the five star hotels that the ball teams stay at.

We’ll see if the Brewers look a little jet lagged tonight on the field. Any slight edge the Phillies have is a good thing. The first time starter, Cole Irvin, yesterday had a very great result, in fact he may have earned himself a spot in the rotation now that Vince Velasquez has ended up on the 10-day DL – or IL as they call it now. I kind of still like the DL moniker for this.

The Brewers are 24-18, they lost a step or two with the Cubs series, they lost 2 of 3 games to the Cubbies and dropped down to second place in the standings, as the Cubs took first place with their 24-14 record. The Cubs have gone 8-2 in their last 10 games.

This is the start (if you listened to the latest Phillies Talk Podcast you would know) of a very tough part in the Phillies schedule. The next several weeks has the Phillies playing the Brewers in 7 games, and many other better opponents. In other words this may be one of the parts of the season that will define this team. If they can win often, it will put them in a great place, if not, then it will be somewhat of a big setback for the Phils.

The keys to the series obviously is not letting Christian Yelich hurt you. Moves by Phillies manager, Gabe Kapler, to walk certain players are non-existent though, so if a player is going to get a chance to hurt you, guys like Yelich will take full advantage of this. We’ll see what happens as the series unfolds.

Tonight it will be Aaron Nola vs. Freddy Peralta in what should be the best pitching matchup of the series.
