One of the best pitchers in the game, Jake Arrieta, will square off against star slugger Ryan Braun and his Milwaukee Brewers, as long as he avoids the DL.
Ryan Braun is currently battling what’s being declared a “strain” in his left knee, though any ailment to a star player with Braun’s injury history is cause for concern.
Braun has been on a tear this season, hitting at a .325 rate with 22 homers and 13 steals.
Milwaukee has only scored 482 runs total on the year however, good for 24th overall.
Zach Davies has been a great story this year, going 9-5 with a 3.80 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP in his first full season as a starter.
One has to wonder, however, if the innings total is beginning to show, as he’s allowed 13 earned runs over his past 5 starts.
Aroldis Chapman continues to be a revelation for the Cubs’ bullpen, locking down 6 saves since coming over from the Yankees and recording a sub-1.00 ERA and sub-0.50 WHIP in the process, with a 13.97 K/9 rate.
Jake Arrieta will look to get out in front enough to not have to make Chapman chuck in the game, and while adding to his 15 wins.
The Cubs offense is one of the top in the MLB, with breakout seasons from young players Addison Russell and Willson Contreras insulating a lineup that includes the likes of Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo.
The playoffs are in-sight for this young, exciting Cubs team.
