Chicago

The Cubs have dropped 16 of their last 19 and apart from a three-game sweep of the Padres early last week, haven't given fans much to cheer about.

The Milwaukee Brewers faithful haven't had things quite that bad, but 2012 was a year they expected to contend again, coming off a '11 season in which they reached the NLCS. Things haven't worked out that way as the Brew Crew has put up a record of 24-30, though they've been a little better of late.

Yovani Gallardo will start on the bump at Miller Park, facing off against Ryan Dempster. Here's the way the Cubs will lineup:

1. Tony Campana - CF
2. Starlin Castro - SS
3. David DeJesus - RF
4. Alfonso Soriano - LF
5. Bryan LaHair - 1B
6. Steve Clevenger - C
7. Darwin Barney - 2B
8. Ian Stewart - 3B
9. Ryan Dempster - P
