On Friday night, the Milwaukee Brewers clinched their first division title since 1982, when they were in the AL East. The Pirates, however, should not expect to get Milwaukee's triple A September call-up lineup, as the Brewers continue to battle the Diamondbacks for the second best record in the National League. The series is crucial for hosting a divisional series, with the Brewers maintaining a one game lead over the Dbacks.
The PIrates enter the final series of the 2011 campaign at 71-88, but are 2-10 against the NL Central champs. The Bucs are still looking to get their first win of the season at Miller Park and spoil the Brewers hopes of hosting a playoff series.
Charlie Morton starts game one for the Bucs, entering with a 10-10 record and a 3.67 ERA. The Brewers counter with Shawn Marcum, who is 13-7 with a 3.31 ERA and is looking to set a career-high in wins tonight with 14.
Monday: Charlie Morton vs. Shawn Marcum
Tuesday: Ross Ohlendorf vs. Randy Wolf
Wednesday: Jeff Locke vs. TBD
