Brewers-Cubs Preview

(AP) -- The Milwaukee Brewers have held at least a share of the NL Central lead for nearly the entire season but that run is in jeopardy following a dismal end to this past month.

The Brewers will seek to begin September with a much-needed victory Monday against the division's cellar dweller, the Chicago Cubs, and start to build some momentum for a pivotal series later this week.

Milwaukee (73-63) hasn't been out of first place since April 4 and had sole possession of the Central lead dating back to July 21 until Sunday. The Brewers dropped into a tie with St. Louis after a 15-5 drubbing in San Francisco and the Cardinals' 9-6 victory over the Cubs (61-76).
