MILWAUKEE (WSAU) - The Milwaukee Brewers will get back together tomorrow after their All-Star break.
A late afternoon workout is planned at Miller Park, to help the Brewers get ready for the second half of the season. Ryan Braun will reunite with his teammates after he went 2-for-3 with an R-B-I and a run scored in last night’s 8-nothing National League rout of the American League in the All-Star Game. Brewers’ manager Ron Roenicke will also see his players for the first time since Sunday, after he served as a National League coach in last night’s Mid-Summer Classic.
The Brewers have one last chance to gain ground in the N-L Central before the July 31st trade deadline. Their next nine games are all against teams ahead of them in the division standings. And if they don’t dominate against Pittsburgh, Saint Louis, and Cincinnati, they may have to consider trading their ace Zack Greinke to get something for him before he becomes a free agent this winter.
Pittsburgh leads the Central, eight games ahead of fourth-place Milwaukee. And the Brewers will open a crucial three-game series against the Pirates on Friday night at Miller Park.
