    Hot-hitting Brewers face Blue Jays in short series

    Despite a 13-6 loss Sunday at Wrigley Field, the Milwaukee Brewers are still atop the National League Central standings heading into the opener of a two-game interleague series against the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday night at Miller Park. The Brewers (25-19) have been something of a pleasant surprise so far, riding a potent offense that ranked third in on-base-plus-slugging percentage, runs scored, homers and stolen bases through the Sunday games. The Brewers' starting rotation ranked 21st in ERA, 26th in WHIP and 30th in walks per nine innings through the weekend.
