A doubleheader between the Milwaukee Brewers and the San Francisco Giants will take place on Thursday evening. This is just a two-game series that will finish in a matter of a few hours on Milwaukee's home turf. It is quite an interesting matchup, to say the least.
Milwaukee sits in the second spot in the National League Central division. Since the league is in its last stretch, the teams below the Brewers have no chances of overtaking them. A decent overall record (71-65) has placed them in a sweet spot. Only the St. Louis Cardinals are ahead of them and deservingly so. A small concern for Milwaukee is their recent 4-6 run in the last 10. They even lost their last match to the struggling Colorado Rockies.

San Francisco is neither comfortable nor happy with its position in the NL West. They sit third in the division and can say goodbye to their playoff chances. Interestingly, the Giants share the same 4-6 run as the Brewers and are coming off a defeat in their last game. The division is totally in control of the Los Angeles Dodgers, who have an impeccable record(94-42) this season.

It will be interesting to see who wins the doubleheader series between the Brewers and the Giants. San Francisco's position is in total danger as the Arizona Diamondbacks are right behind them. If they lose this series, they might end up losing the third spot as well. For reasons such as these, this series becomes all the more exciting.
