Brewers look to shake off tough losses vs. Cubs

MILWAUKEE -- The deficit will be 5 1/2 games for the Milwaukee Brewers in the National League Central when they take the field against the first-place Chicago Cubs Saturday afternoon.

Despite the margin, Milwaukee still feels good about its chances of reaching the postseason for the first time in six years.

Milwaukee enters the third game of the four-game series on a three-game losing streak. After Corey Knebel allowed a game-winning homer to Adam Frazier Wednesday in Pittsburgh, the Brewers opened the series with consecutive 10-inning losses.
