The Cincinnati Reds (33-44) look sweep the Milwaukee Brewers (41-39) in tonight’s conclusion of a three game series. It’s has been a nice payback for the Redlegs who were outscored 53-26 by the Brewers the last time that these two clubs played back in two April series.
With the Cubs also losing the past two days, the Brewers extended their hold atop the division to 33 consecutive days. This season is the first time that Milwaukee has spent any days above .500 (let alone atop the division) since the 2014 season. On June 28th of that 2014 season, the Brewers were in charge of the division at 19 games over .500 before the bottom fell out. It was June 29th that started a stretch of just one win over their next 12 games, finishing that season in 3rd place at just 82-80.
POSSIBLE HOMERUN RECORD TONIGHT
11 HR hit so far in this #Reds v Brewers series. The most combined HR hit in a 3-game series at GABP is 16 (June, 2005 vs Rays).

Bailey is making just his 2nd start of the season, obviously hoping to bounce back from his poor first start off the DL last week.

They say that history repeats itself, which means it is time for the Brewers to implode and for the Reds to deliver that first harsh punch. It’s payback time for that April beat down.
