Chicago vs Milwaukee: Cubs Aim to Sweep The Brewers

Chicago vs Milwaukee: Cubs Aim to Sweep The Brewers

Cubs are still chasing rainbows in the NL Central

Despite posting a 34-15 record dating back to the beginning of August, Chicago still hasn’t captured a pot of gold. The Cubs were four games behind Pittsburgh and 9.5 back of St. Louis on August 1 and the margins are now two and six games respectively. With a huge series at home against the Buccos looming this weekend, Chicago can’t look past Milwaukee here as they aim for a sweep of the Brewers tonight. The Cubbies posted 9-5 and 4-0 wins during the first two games of this series. Chicago is 11-4 against the Brew Crew this season – a hot steeak that includes nine straight wins.

Milwaukee Brewers: Have been getting blown out in the Windy City

We often wonder what motivates teams like Milwaukee who are 63-88 and 32 games out of first place as well as being playoff eliminated. It appears to be very little as far as the Brewers go as they are on a 2-12 recent slide. That streak includes five consecutive losses at Wrigley Field by a 31-12 margin. Prior to getting swept by the Pirates and Cardinals, the Brewers avoided the brooms against the Reds with an 8-4 win over Cincinnati on Sunday. The Cubs are 5-3 when attempting to earn a series sweep since the All-Star break with two of the wins being against Milwaukee - one at home and one on the road. 

Brewers vs Cubs Call: Chicago sophomore RHP Kyle Hendricks 7-6 ERA 4.22) and Milwaukee rookie RHP Zach Davies (1-2 ERA 6.00) square off on the slab tonight. Hendricks has struggled some recently as he has allowed three or more runs in seven of his last eight starts. Davies has given up 14 runs, allowing 19 hits and 12 walks over 21 innings pitched, during his first four MLB starts. Davies has not faced the Cubs while Hendricks is 1-0 and has allowed just one run over 12.1 innings during two starts against the Brewers. Cruise with the Windy City Crew and a 500 unit wager on the money line odds posted on the MLB betting board at the TopBet online sportsbook.
