The Cubs will try to salvage the final game of this four-game set with the Brewers in front of an exceedingly handsome crowd. It’s a great pitching matchup, with Matt Garza going against Zack Greinke, who will hopefully be distracted by some recent struggles in discussing an extension with the Brewers.

No Aramis today, which is a bummer. But, in his place, we get the one and only Cesar Izturis. Yes, he’s still playing.
