With all Major League teams competing against each other next season, it certainly presents the Brewers will some very intriguing matchups. Here, I highlight five of the most interesting aspects about the 2023 Milwaukee Brewers schedule.1. Shohei Ohtani and the Los Angeles (Maybe?) Angels Are Coming to Milwaukee
Shohei Ohtani may just be the brightest star in baseball. A Cy Young and MVP candidate every year, Major League Baseball has not seen a player like him since Babe Ruth. The Angels, who are in the beginning stages of exploring a sale of the team, are on the Brewers schedule for a three-game series in Milwaukee on April 28-30.
2. The Brewers Play the St. Louis Cardinals Seven Times in September
If 2022 is any indicator, the National League Central Division will certainly be a season-long battle between the Milwaukee Brewers and St. Louis Cardinals. According to the 2023 Brewers schedule, Milwaukee will play seven of 13 games against their division rival in late September. Four games will be played in St. Louis from September 18-21. The final three games of the season series between the two teams will be in Milwaukee from September 26-28.
3. The Brewers 2023 Schedule Begins & Ends With the Chicago Cubs
As is the case with the Cardinals, the Brewers schedule likewise has Milwaukee playing the Chicago Cubs 13 times in 2023. In fact, they will begin and end the 2023 season against the Cubs. As a result, they will open the season in Chicago from March 30-April 2 (no game on March 31). The Brewers will end the 2023 regular season in a three-game series against the Cubs in Milwaukee from September 29-October 1.
4. The Brewers Will Play 10-Straight Games Against Division Opponents Going Into the All-Star Break
The 2023 All-Star Game will be held at T-Mobile Park in Seattle on July 11. Heading into the break, the Brewers will play 10 games against NL Central opponents from June 30-July 9. The first three of the 10 games will be at Pittsburgh. However, this series against the Pirates will wrap up a 10-game road trip, including stops in Cleveland and New York (Mets). The Brewers will then return home for four games against the Cubs and three against the Cincinnati Reds.
5. April is a Tough Month on the Brewers Schedule
The Milwaukee Brewers may struggle out of the gate in 2023. After the opening series against the Cubs, the Crew will subsequently open at home against the New York Mets. Meanwhile other series in April include games against the Seattle Mariners, Cardinals, San Diego Padres, and Boston Red Sox. In addition, the Mariners and Padres series will be on the road. The other two will be at home in Milwaukee. April ends with home series against the Tigers and Angels.
