Ian Happ had three hits, including a tiebreaking two-run double in the seventh inning while Corbin Burnes had a 5.4 ERA and 4 strikeouts.

Cubs left-hander Justin Steele will start on Friday afternoon. Last season averaged a 4.26 ERA with 59 strikeouts and a 1.35 whip.

Ian Happ will have to have another great game if the Cubs want to win this next one. Someone is going to have to crank out a homer for the Brewers if they should be able to put fear in the eyes in the hearts of the Cubs in the one. 

The Brewers are 4-1 in their last 5 Friday games and are 12-5 in their last 17 during game 2 of a series. The Cubs are 1-10 in their last 11 Friday games and are 5-21 in their last 26 games as a home underdog. The Cubs are 2-9 in their last 11 when their opponent allows 5 runs or more in their previous game. The Brewers are 19-7 in the last 26 meetings and are 6-1 in the last 7 meetings in Chicago.

The over is 4-1-1 and is 3-1-1 in the Brewers last 5 when their opponent scores 5 runs or more in their previous game.last 6 road games and this is what the Brewers should look to if they want to pull out the win here.

The Brewers were close to getting the win in the first one and I think they can make the necessary adjustments in this next one to go out and get the win. If they can pick it up on offense they should be able to squeeze out a win. I’ll back the Brewers here in this one.
