The Milwaukee Brewers and Chicago Cubs meet Saturday in MLB action at Wrigley Field.
The Milwaukee Brewers look for a win after winning four of their last six games. The Brewers have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last eight games. The Brewers are 10-1 this season when scoring four or more runs. Omar Narvaez leads the Brewers with 19 hits and 10 RBI while Jackie Bradley Jr. and Travis Shaw have combined for 30 hits and 17 RBI. Freddy Peralta gets the ball, and he is 2-0 with a 2.00 ERA and 31 strikeouts this season. Peralta is 4-1 with a 3.18 ERA and 36 strikeouts in his career against the Cubs.
The Chicago Cubs look to build on their four-game winning streak. The Cubs have scored 35 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last six games. The Cubs are 8-1 this season when scoring four or more runs. Kris Bryant leads the Cubs with 20 hits and 12 RBI while Javier Baez and Willson Contreras have combined for 33 hits and 30 RBI. Adbert Alzolay gets the ball, and he is 0-2 with a 6.10 ERA and 10 strikeouts this season. Alzolay is 0-2 with a 6.35 ERA and 11 strikeouts in his career against the Brewers.
The Brewers are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series and 4-1 in their last 5 Saturday games. The Cubs are 4-1 in their last 5 games as an underdog and 1-4 in their last 5 vs. National League Central. The under is 18-6-3 in Brewers last 27 road games. The over is 4-1 in Cubs last 5 Saturday games. The Brewers are 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Chicago and 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
Not the most ideal pitching matchup in the world, as Peralta has been hit or miss through his first 200 career innings and Alzolay has just 44 innings under his belt. However, I'm not sure how you can turn down the Cubs at home with the plus money, as the bats have picked up and the confidence is building. The Cubs have to be feeling good right now, especially after dropping a 15 piece last night.
