MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The next five games will help the Brewers figure out how they stack up against the National League's best teams.
Tonight they play the second game of a three-game series against the NL West-leading Dodgers.
And after that is three games at San Diego, which is just a half game behind L.A.
The Brewers bats were active in last night's 9-5 win in the series opener.
Ben Sheets is probably hoping for that kind of run support tonight.
The Brewers ace is 4-2 on the season with a 3.68 ERA.
He'll be opposed by the Dodgers' Randy Wolf, who has similar statistics.
He's 5-3 with an almost identical ERA of 3.91.
Milwaukee enters play six-and-a-half games ahead of the Astros.
