MILWAUKEE -- 127 down. 35 to go. The Brewers' push toward October continues tonight as they send Jordan Lyles to the mound in pursuit of the team's 66th win of the season. 

After surrendering just one earned run in each of his first three starts with the Brewers this season, Lyles threw a five-run, four-inning clunker against the Nationals in his last outing.

The matchup is beneficial, on paper, for the Brewers' hopes of getting back into the N.L. Central race. The Crew is 3-1 (.750 W%) against the Diamondbacks this season; that's the second-winningest matchup (5-1, .833 W% vs Mets; 12-4 // .750 W% vs Pirates) for the team this season.

MIL (65-62): Jordan Lyles, 2-1, 3.43 ERA (in four starts with the Brewers)
