Chase Anderson was on his game on Thursday in the first game of a four between the Brewers and Cubs from Wrigley Field. He made on mistake to Kyle Schwarber in the sixth inning, though, and lost.
The Crew’s offense managed just six hits off of a combination of Kyle Hendricks, Carl Edwards Jr. and Brandon Morrow and failed to score for the fourth time already. It’s a big number for a team that has won more than 60 percent of its games.
Junior Guerra missed his first two starts of the season with injury but he’s made three now and has won two of them.
He’s 2–0 despite failing to go six innings in any of the three. He’s gone either five or five and part of the sixth in all three and given up just one earned run. Crunch the numbers and he’s got an ERA of 0.56 and a WHP of exactly 1.00.
Schwarber’s home run was his sixth of the season. He hit 30 last year but slugged only .467. This year, it’s .606.
But it isn’t the home runs that have the Cubs excited about Schwarber again; it’s the fact that he’s hitting for average (.288) and getting on base at a better clip. He is much more than a home run hitter and he’s at his best when he’s spraying the ball, hitting doubles and taking walks.
Kris Bryant missed his third game in a row on Thursday with an elbow injury. The injury isn’t considered serious but the Cubs will play it safe with their franchise cornerstone. He is day-to-day and will more than likely return to the series by this game.
Jose Quintana has been underwhelming for about the last year. He has yet to surpass 20 innings pitched on the season despite making four starts already for a team that could really use the innings out of its starters. As long as he’s mediocre, or worse, the Cubs will hang around the rest of the middling teams in the NL Central.
