MARYVALE, Ariz. - The combatants in MLB's I-94 rivalry get it on, about 2,000 miles from I-94.

The Milwaukee Brewers take on the Chicago Cubs in a spring training game where the combatants are familiar, and will be familiar with each other even more when the regular season comes around.

Milwaukee's Yovani Gallardo, who has had a not-so-great spring training in Milwaukee, takes on Carlos Villanueva on the mound.

You can hear today's Brewers-Cubs game with Bob Uecker and Joe Block on the call on Newsradio 620 WTMJ at 2:55 p.m.

Meanwhile, concerns have grown over Michael Fiers' spring training, after a bad outing in the Chicago White Sox's 8-3 win over Milwaukee on Thursday.

USA Today says that the Brewers have dropped their payroll, and that has led them to cut their chances to reach the playoffs.

CBS Sports has a more positive outlook on the Brewers.

For those who love their March sports news March Madness-style, Yahoo! Sports decided to bracket-ize the greatest Milwaukee Brewers and decide the greatest of the Brew Crew.
