Division Leaders Meet When Nationals Host Brewers Friday Night

Brewers out to end rough patch at start of second-half

Milwaukee almost lost its division lead heading into the All-Star break when it lost seven straight games and eight of 10 before winning their final game on Sunday. Their recent struggles have tightened an already tight race in the NL Central. The top four teams are separated by just 3.5 games in the standings, with the top three teams separated by just 1.5 games. Kyle Lohse opens the second-half for the Brewers on the mound.

Nationals tied atop NL East to begin stretch run

As the league resumes its schedule on Friday, the Nationals will host a series with the Brewers. Washington is tied atop the NL East with the Atlanta Braves. The East proves to be another tight race to the very end in 2014, as neither team seems willing to run away with things. Stephen Strasburg will get the ball on Friday with his 7-6 record. He labored through his last outing, which came on Sunday against the Phillies.

On Friday night, the Brewers and Nationals open a three-game set that is very much a statement series for both teams. Milwaukee owns the second-best record in the NL. We will place our bets at TopBet.eu for the Brewers to win this game outright as we drop 15 percent of our bankroll on Milwaukee on the road as they begin their defense of the top spot in the NL Central.
