The Brewers named the starting pitchers for Games 1-3 of the NLCS on Thursday. 

Gio Gonzales will get the ball to start Game 1 at Miller Park on Friday after not getting a start in the NLDS against the Colorado Rockies. 

Wade Miley will take the mound for Game 2 at Miller Park and Jhoulys Chacín will start for the Crew for Game 3 at Dodger Stadium.
