Brewers, Nationals focus on fine-tuning

WASHINGTON -- Division leaders with two different approaches meet again Wednesday as the Milwaukee Brewers battle the Washington Nationals with a pair of eight-game winners on the hill.

The surprising Brewers were not supposed to be atop the National League Central, and their recent struggles have raised the question of whether Milwaukee should be active with the July 31 trade deadline looming. The Brewers were rumored to get a head start Tuesday as multiple media outlets reported they acquired reliever Anthony Swarzak from the Chicago White Sox in exchange for minor league outfielder Ryan Cordell.

Overall, though, Milwaukee manager Craig Counsell is happy with the players that got him this far, and wants to keep fighting with them during the stretch run.
