"Nobody's perfect."

The Brewers and Dodgers have played 30 series against one another prior to this week's three-game set at Miller Park. Never have the Brewers swept the Dodgers, but Milwaukee holds a 2-0 lead entering this morning's series finale.

Aaron Harang gets the start for the Dodgers, fresh off his career-high-tying 13 strikeouts against San Diego, including a Dodgers record nine straight strikeouts. Old friend Randy Wolf gets the start for Milwaukee.

Matt Kemp drove in a run Wednesday night, giving him and teammate Andre Ethier a combined 34 RBI. Only four sets of teammates since 1921 have driven in more runs through 12 team games:
