Series Preview: Milwaukee Brewers vs. Texas Rangers

The Brewers will be happy to be home after a rough series in San Diego, where they dropped three of four, finishing up a 3-4 West Coast trip. Their offense has cooled since their hot start, and while they’re still finding ways to win games—they’ve won five of seven series in June—their sizable lead in the National League Central has shrunk over the past week as the St. Louis Cardinals have been finding their way.

The Texas Rangers, the reigning World Series champions, have had a disappointing season. Their team has been mostly healthy, aside from the ancient Max Scherzer and the already-injured Jacob deGrom, but they have underachieved: they come into Milwaukee on Monday with a record of 37-40 and are third in the AL West.
