Milwaukee won its eighth game in a row on Wednesday, beating the Kansas City Royals, 6–2.
The winning streak has come against three of the weakest teams in the league: Cincinnati, Miami and Kansas City but it’s a win streak nonetheless. The Brew Crew is atop the NL Central.
Milwaukee is still trading at better than +300 to win that division and if you believe in what it did last season, why couldn’t it finish the job this year?
Lorenzo Cain and Christian Yelich are a breathe of fresh air at the top of the lineup and Domingo Santana looks more comfortable in the middle, even if the production hasn’t completely been there yet.
Brett Suter starts this game, the second of the series. He isn’t a guy who will go eight or nine innings but usually gives a solid five. In today’s game, there’s nothing wrong with that.
The Cubbies split a two-game set in Cleveland, the first time they were at Progressive Field since Game 7 of the 2016 World Series.
Kyle Schwarber was the big bat in the win, homering twice. He’s looked good in the early going, which is a great sign for Chicago, which isn’t at its best unless Schwarber is the Silver Slugger candidate he can be.
Yu Darvish has failed to make it out of the fifth inning in each of his last two games. Maybe it’s the cold, wet Chicago weather or maybe it’s a carryover from his struggles in last year’s World Series, but he hasn’t been worth the lucrative contract Theo Epstein offered him in the offseason.
He’s too talented for me to give up on him now, though. I expect Darvish to bounce back in a big divisional matchup, even if it’s still April.

Free Milwaukee Brewers vs. Chicago Cubs MLB Prediction: both starters keep it low and the bullpens decide things.
It may get pushed over late because neither ‘pen is shutdown, but I like this one to stay under wherever the oddsmakers set the total.
