The Milwaukee Brewers will look to complete the sweep of the Cubs after dismantling Chicago by a final score of 15-2 on Saturday. Orlando Arcia went a ideal 3 for 3 with a double and three RBIs, while Travis Shaw went 1 for 2 with a double of his own and two RBIs. If the Brewers are to overcome that deficit and make their first postseason appearance since 2011, they'll have to do it behind a rotation led by 16-game victor winner Zach Davies, veteran Matt Garza and breakout pitcher Chase Anderson. Zach Davies will get the nod in the finale and is 16-8 with a 3.77 ERA and 113 strikeouts this season.
Reds rookie Luis Castillo allowed a run on four hits over eight innings, striking out 10 and walking nobody to earn his third win of the season.
