All the momentum that the Cubs built in David Ross’ managerial debut win on Friday was dashed when Chicago fell 3-8 to the Brewers on Saturday. Chicago can salvage the series with a Sunday win at Wrigley Field.
Milwaukee was facing some offensive questions after posting just 3 hits vs. Kyle Hendricks in the season opener but the Brewers bounced back nicely in knocking Yu Darvish out of the game after 4.0 IP in game two.
It’s been a tale of two teams for the Brewers so far this series. Orlando Arcia was the only Brewers batter to get a hit on Friday, going 3-3. On Saturday, Arcia was the only Milwaukee player not to get a hit.
Christian Yelich bounced back from an 0-4, 2K game on Friday by hitting his first HR of the season on Saturday. Justin Smoak added a long ball as the Brewers rattled off 11 hits and scoring 5 runs of the Cubs bullpen.
Freddy Peralta will try to earn a permanent spot in the Brewers starting rotation as he takes the hill in the series finale. Peralta started in 8 of his 39 appearances last year appearing in every pitching role.
In some ways the Cubs were lucky to get the win in the season opener after getting all three of their runs via the long ball (Ian Happ, Anthony Rizzo) and having just 5 hits.
That was the same story in Saturday’s loss as the Cubs scored 3 runs on just 6 hits, two runs coming in on a Kyle Schwarber home run. Chicago isn’t doing a great job of manufacturing through two games.
Tyler Chatwood needs a step up game for both his own psyche as well as the Cubs’ trust in the right-hander. Chatwood started just 5 games last year, his fewest since 2014.
