Brewers face formal elimination

It could be the official end of the road tonight for the Brewers, who would be officially eliminated from postseason contention with a loss to the Cubs plus a Rockies win over the Padres in Denver. Of course, the Brewers haven’t had serious postseason aspirations for some time. The last time I can remember anyone mentioning the playoffs was Aug. 19 in Pittsburgh, when both Carlos Villanueva and Yovani Gallardo said the team might have a chance if they got hot like the Rockies did at the end of 2007.

Casey McGehee gets the night off and, as promised, Jody Gerut is in right field against Randy Wells. Gerut hit a grand slam off Wells last week in Chicago.
