The Brewers refuse to believe they've relinquished control of first place in the NL Central

The Cubs-Brewers rivalry is starting to become more interesting than Cubs-Cardinals.

Chicago's neighbors to the north have tried to keep the Cubs fans out of Miller Park and engaged in Twitter warfare with @Cubs.

Now they appear to be living in a fantasy world.

After the Cubs exploded in the 11th inning for a 7-2 win over the Brewers Monday night in Milwaukee, Anthony Rizzo and Co. took over sole possession of first place in the National League Central.

Only, the Miller Park scoreboard operator chose to leave that part out before Tuesday night's game:

As you'll notice there, they say the standings are "as of June 11, 2018" and it clearly has the Brewers still a half-game up on the Cubs.

The question now becomes: Was it just a simple accident or yet another attempt by the Brewers to try to take a dig at the Cubs?

It's not like it's a day game after a night game, so the Miller Park scoreboard operators had a good 19 hours to update the standings.

Either way, the Cubs have won 8 of 9 against the Brew Crew entering Tuesday night's game and just might be in the heads of the Milwaukee team and fanbase.
