The last time the Braves lost a series was the first week of June, when the Pittsburgh Pirates were able to scratch two wins out of three. Since then, the Braves have gone 9-0-1 in series, with the lone tie coming against the Chicago Cubs. The Braves have fared well against the NL Central otherwise, posting a 17-9 record, and they will look to improve that mark against another Central team - the struggling Milwaukee Brewers.
The Brewers started the season strong enough but have faded recently. At 48-46, they are in danger of falling under .
