Two teams going in opposite directions meet at the same spot this weekend to play three baseball games.

The Milwaukee Brewers, winners of four straight and seven of its last 10, became the second team in the National League to reach the 70-win plateau after completing a sweep of the Chicago Cubs.

Meanwhile, the Pittsburgh Pirates are trending in the other direction, dropping its last eight games and winning just one of its last 10.

This is the final series of the season between the two teams and the Brewers have had the Pirates number all season long.

Coming into the weekend, the Brewers are 12-4 against the Buccos.

Can the Pirates get revenge on their division rival this weekend or will these streaks continue?
