The NL Central wars continue today as division leader Milwaukee visits the Chicago Cubs. With each side trending in opposite directions, the Brewers lead Chicago by 14.5 games, making this a potential spoiler matchup for the Cubs.
And a Chicago win today would be rare. Milwaukee stands 9-3 head to head this season vs. their second city rival.
The Brewers have defied critics all year with excellent pitching and timely offense to gain inside leverage toward a fourth straight postseason bid. Featuring talented staff, Milwaukee rates among NL leaders while sporting 66 games won by starting pitchers, and a 3.33 ERA. The Brewers allow 3.72 runs per game -2nd best in the national league.
Settling after the All Star break, Milwaukee is 10-4 since July 23 with series wins over CHW, Pittsburgh (twice), and Atlanta. Seven of those ten victories saw the Brew Crew add more than five runs, a contrast from their 4.52 runs per -#14 NL.
Also consider Milwaukee scored 31 runs, and claimed three wins, during its most recent sweep of the Cubs.
As of Monday afternoon the Brewers haven’t named a probable starter for Tuesday vs. Chicago.
On Sunday, Milwaukee dropped its second straight contest against the San Francisco Giants. The best statistical team in the majors used eighth-inning heroics to eke by Milwaukee 5-4 in a competitive series, featuring two extra inning decisions.
The Cubs are trapped in their worst 2021 slump, losing nine of eleven since July 27. While Chicago is just below average defensively, allowing 4.60 runs, offensive issues have kept this group from last fall’s success. A .227 batting average negates Chicago’s respectable 141 home runs.
Cubs pitching has also underperformed and trends toward the NL bottom in staff wins and ERA. Though, shaky bullpen work is the team’s biggest weakness.
The Cubs are riding a four-game losing streak, with three of those setbacks against windy city rival CHW. On a nationally televised Sunday encounter, the Cubs fell 9-3 vs. the White Sox in a battle of Chicago.
Cubs rookie Justin Steele gets his first starting nod today. In 13 bullpen innings Steele offers a 2.03 earned run average, but will be tested early opposite live professional bats.

Free Milwaukee Brewers vs. Chicago Cubs MLB Prediction:
Expect Milwaukee to pressure inexperienced Justin Steele offensively while using a strong bullpen to seal matters vs. Chicago. The Brewers are too deep for their host, and will use this series as a springboard after facing SFG.
