The Milwaukee Brewers went into the all-star break with a 3-7 road trip. It may have been their worst performance of the season. They try to turn things around with the start of the second half by opening a 10-game home stand tonight against the Colorado Rockies.
The Brewers lead over the Cubs in the NL Central is down to 4 1/2 games. They're 49-39 on the season and will send Chris Capuano to the mound tonight. Capuano has struggled since jumping out of the gate with a 5-0 mark.
Since May 7th, Capuano is 0-6 with a 7.20 ERA. He missed three starts in June with a pulled groin but made his last two starts and is healthy coming in.
The Rockies are 44-44 and have won five of their last 6 games. But prior to that stretch, they had dropped 9 of 10.
