Brewers now 2.5 games off pace in NLC; host Atlanta tonight
The Milwaukee Brewers will play their first home game since the All-Star break tonight, when they take on the Atlanta Braves.
The Brewers are coming off a 3-4 road trip in which they dropped to fourth place in the National League Central.
They're now a game behind the Chicago Cubs and Houston, and 2.5 behind front-running St. Louis.
The Cardinals won a rain-shortened contest at Washington last night, 4-1 in seven innings. The other three contenders were all idle.
