This NL matchup includes two teams that are very exciting at the plate.
The Chicago Cubs are one of the best teams in baseball currently, and the odds seem to always be in their favor.
The Milwaukee Brewers are right there in the thick of things so far this season.
The Chicago Cubs are hot not only on the mound this season, but at the plate as well. They are led by Dexter Fowler overall in average with a .321 average. Fowler has also legged out 14 2 baggers so far this season.
The Cubs landed a big acquisition this offseason in 2nd basement Ben Zobrist. Zobrist is hitting .317 this year with a team high .439 on base percentage while knocking in 28 runs already.
Anthony Rizzo is providing the power for the Cubs. Rizzo is hitting only .265 but has 11 bombs and 34 RBI’s, both in which lead the team.
The Cubs are led in pitching by Jake Arrieta, that’s apparent, but they also have another undefeated pitcher taking the hill in Jason Hammel. Hammel is currently 5-0 on the year with a 1.77 E.R.A and 36 strikeouts.
He was last in action against Pittsburgh in a victory. He threw 6.2 innings of work, giving up 8 hits but only 1 earned run. He also walked 2 batters and struck out 8. Hammel looks to stay perfect on Thursday.
The Milwaukee Brewers lineup is not bad overall, and they are led by the one and only, Ryan Braun. Braun is hitting a solid .364 with 7 dingers and 28 runs batted in.
Chris Carter is providing the boom for the Brewers this year; he has hit 11 home runs with 28 runs batted in. Carter is also hitting .256.
Johnathon Lucroy is producing at a fine level; he is hitting .311 with 6 home runs and 16 RBI’s. The Brewer’s lineup will have their hands full this series.
Junior Guerra will be taking the bump on Thursday in only his 4th start this season. He is currently 2-0 on the year with a 4.00 E.R.A and 12 strikeouts.
He was last in action in a win against the San Diego Padres. He threw 6 shutout innings and only gave up 2 hits. He also walked 2 batters and had 4 strikeouts. Guerra will look to succeed in the biggest test that he’s had so far this season.

Free Chicago Cubs vs Milwaukee Brewers MLB Prediction:
I don’t think this game is going to be very close overall. I think this Cubs team is head and above better than any team right now. Also their number 2 on the mound in Hammel will be tough for anyone to beat.
