The Brew Crew are trying to clinch their second series win on a Sunday matinee at Wrigley. The season series is now tied 3-3 and the winner of Sunday’s game will gain the edge in the record.
Christian Yelich has looked good in the first two games of the series and even scored the winning run in Saturday’s game. Yelich added two home runs to his totals over the weekend and will try to do more damage in the series finale on Sunday.
The Brewers are only averaging 3.78 runs on the season, ranking them down at 28th overall. The Milwaukee pitching staff brings a solid 4.16 team ERA into this one, good for 13th in the Majors.
Veteran right-hander Josh Lindbloom is going for the Crew on Sunday. Lindbloom has logged five or fewer innings in all three starts and owns a 5.68 ERA and a 1.58 WHIP in 12.2 innings pitched.
The Cubs are in great shape in the NL Central with a huge five-game lead even after dropping two games. They have yet to lose a series this year and have been getting the job done both at the plate and on the bump.
A few of the Cubs’ key hitters have yet to play to their full potential this season including Javier Baez and Kris Bryant. Once they are able to get it going the Cub could possibly not lose again with the way they are playing.
Left-hander Jon Lester is looking very tough to beat right now, allowing just two runs in his three starts. Lester has 1.06 ERA and a 0.65 WHIP accompanied by a 2-0 record to begin 2020. Lester has been excellent in his career against Milwaukee, registering a 5-4 record and a 2.97 ERA in 69.2 innings.
