The All-Star break was supposed to end yesterday in the Bronx, but COVID issues with the Yankees forced the postponement of the scheduled game against rival Boston. While this series is currently the only one impacted by this problem remember that Aaron Judge, one of those who’ve tested positive, was around everyone that was a part of All-Star Game festitives including the four Brewers. It remains to be seen if another surge in cases is about to begin or not.
Assuming that no issues arise, the second half of the season begins tonight for the Brewers in Cincinnati. Adrian Houser has been announced as the scheduled starter for the Crew tonight against Tyler Mahle as Milwaukee tries to make up the three games they dropped to the Reds before the break.
While the Brewers still hold on to a four game NL Central lead, they have lost their last two series to the Mets and Reds, respectively. A big series also looms on the horizon at American Family Field against the Chicago White Sox, who currently hold the best record in the American League. Note that we’ll have coverage of the Saturday and Sunday night games of that White Sox series.
