The Brewers are threatening to make it into the wildcard, and their playoff hopes are still alive. The Mets are standing in their way, and a three games series with the Mets will be basically a win or go home scenario. Milwaukee sits just 3 games back of the wildcard spot, after being 12 ½ games back of that same wildcard spot just about a month ago.

MLB odds are favoring the Brewers in this one, who are currently one win away from setting a franchise home wins record. Milwaukee has won 17 straight games in Miller Park.

For the first game of this series, Jonathon Niese is heading to the hill for New York, while Mike Fiers will pitch for the Brewers. Fiers has been solid this season, going 9-7, with a 3.05 ERA and 111 strikeouts. Niese started hot, but he has leveled off after the first half. His season stats include a 10-9 record, a 3.47 ERA and 140 strikeouts.

Shaun Marcum will take the ball in game number two of this three game series. Marcum has been solid this season, going 5-4 with a 3.71 ERA. The Mets will start Jenrry Mejia, who only has three starts under his belt this season.

The rubber game will feature Chris Young versus Wily Peralta. Neither of these two guys have had solid seasons.

The Brewers have a great shot at continuing their record home streak. However, the Mets’ success this season cannot be ignored. However, if the Brewers can win this series and make the playoffs after losing Prince Fielder in the offseason, and trading Zach Greinke, it would mark one of the best comebacks in MLB history. It’s not impossible, the Cardinals came back from a 10 game hole in September, and we all know how that ended.
