NL Central action resumes Friday as the division leading Milwaukee Brewers host the Chicago Cubs.
Chicago toils again in rebuild mode, having lost four of six following a surprise seven game winning run. The Cubs are essentially eliminated from postseason chase as weeks remain until Wild Card play.
Milwaukee has dropped two straight vs. Detroit to dampen a previous five game unbeaten run. The Brewers still enjoy a cushy 12.5 game divison lead, which should help the club secure a fourth playoff berth in as many seasons.
The money line leans heavy toward Milwaukee as they are expected to sweep Chicago from home and repel any late collapse notions.
Adrian Houser opens for the Brewers. Zach Davies is slated to open for Chicago.
The Chicago Cubs stand 66-80 overall, and 27-44 away from home. A few years removed from World Series glory, Chicago sold its veteran core for future hopes at the trade deadline. The problem with banking on the future is the present can get ugly. Chicago is little more than upset-fodder at a time competitive teams are reaching full throttle.
During what has become his worst MLB season, Zach Davies looks for rare success Friday evening vs. Milwaukee. The 28-year-old rhp is 6-11 with a 5.40 ERA. Those numbers are a major drop from the 43-32 W/L record Davies carved as a Brewer.
Still trying to reclaim his stride, Davies gets another crack tonight at his former club.
Milwaukee continues evolving after being bounced in the last two NL Wild Cards. Still an excellent pitching team that uses the deep blast, the Brewers add more hits to average 4.62 runs per -10th MLB.
Milwaukee allows just 3.71 runs per, which ranks third best among all clubs.
Unlike his Chicago counterpart, Adrian Houser is enjoying his finest year of Major League service behind a 9-6 record and 3.25 ERA. With strong bullpen backing, expect clean work Friday from the emerging RHP.
