The finale of a three-game series between the Brewers and Cubs takes place Wednesday afternoon. The two teams split the first two games of the series. The division rivalry escalated Tuesday when both benches emptied following a hit by pitch from Brad Boxberger.
The Brewers haven’t gotten off to the fastest start from an offensive standpoint. Entering Wednesday, Milwaukee ranks 28th in the league in runs scored a game, averaging exactly 3 runs a contest.
After struggling with starting pitching through their first few games, Freddy Peralta turned in a gem Tuesday. He pitched five shutout innings, struck out eight batters and walked four.
Travis Shaw hit a three-run home run to propel the Brewers to the 4-0 win. Omar Navarez has been the hottest hitter on the team and sent a solo home run over the wall to give the Brewers their fourth run Tuesday.
The Brewers also traded away Orlando Arcia to the Atlanta Braves in an early season move. The move opens the door for Luis Urias to take over at shortstop.
Brandon Woodruff will start on Wednesday. In 2019, he was 11-3 with a 3.62 ERA and 1.14 WHIP, and in 2020 went 3-5 with a 3.05 ERA and 0.99 WHIP in 13 starts.
The Cubs have hit a wall offensively to start the year. Chicago has just 18 hits in five games and is hitting .132 as a team.
Javier Beaz and Wilson Contreras are tied for the team lead in both home runs and RBI’s. Kris Bryant had the lone hit for the Cubs Tuesday, as Chicago batted just 1 for 25 as a team for the game.
Kyle Hendricks will start on Wednesday. He took the opening loss against Pittsburgh, allowing three runs in three innings. In 2020 Hendricks made 12 starts, went 6-5, and posted a 2.88 ERA and 1.00 WHIP.
