Brewers’ Aguilar has smack talk for Cubs ahead of decisive game
Milwaukee Brewers slugger Jesus Aguilar is feeling confident about his team’s chances in Game 163.
The Brewers topped the Detroit Tigers in the final game of the regular season on Sunday to force an NL Central tiebreaker game with the Chicago Cubs. In a postgame interview after the win, Aguilar talked some smack to Milwaukee’s division rivals. Here is what he said, per Adam McCalvy of MLB.com:

Monday’s decisive game, which the Cubs are hosting, will see the winner earn the division crown and the loser go to the NL Wild Card game. The two teams finished with identical 95-67 records this year, but the Cubs won the season series against the Brewers 11-8.
As for the All-Star Aguilar, who hit 35 homers and 108 RBIs in 2018, his dig is just the latest shot fired between these two teams in the last month.
