These two division rivals will face each other for the last time of the season Sunday afternoon. The Brewers will start 27 year old Wily Peralta and he will face right handed Kyle Hendricks.
After giving the Cubs a 11-3 beat down Saturday, the Brewers lead the four game series two games to one.
Sunday afternoon will be the 28th start of the season for Kyle Hendricks.
He dominated the St. Louis Cardinals his last trip to the mound, only allowing one run in eight innings of action.
The win was the 15th of the season for Hendricks.
He currently has an ERA of 2.03 which is the best in the majors. Hendricks has been solid this season against Milwaukee, only allowing the Brewers six runs in 16.1 innings of work.
The Cubs offense hasn’t been too shabby themselves, batting 4.97 which is currently third in the big leagues. The Chicago Cubs entire pitching staff has been on fire before the game Saturday with a team ERA of 3.05.
Anthony Rizzo will be worth keeping an eye on during the game. When batting against Peralta, Rizzo is 16-32 and has knocked in seven base runners.
Will Peralta will be looking for his seventh win in 21 starts Sunday at Wrigley South. He took his 10th loss of the season in his last trip to the mound against the Cincinnati Reds, giving up three runs in six innings.
Throughout the last six weeks, Peralta has looked good at times, but he is still carrying an ERA of 5.42 throughout 109.2 innings on the hill.
In his last start against the North Siders, Peralta was able to get the win, despite allowing four runs in seven innings. He is 4-7 against Chicago with a 4.15 ERA.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Kyle Hendricks of the Chicago Cubs is 5-0 his last seven starts.
- Hendricks has an ERA of 1.52 his last seven trips to the mound.
- Wily Peralta is 2-3 his last seven starts
- Peralta has an ERA of 3.50 in his last 43.2 innings on the hill
Free Milwaukee Brewers vs. Chicago Cubs MLB Prediction:
I don’t see the Brewers doing anything that will put Hendricks out of the rhythm he has been in as of late. He has a 2.01 ERA throughout his career against the brew crew so I really don’t see Milwaukee scoring more than two or three runs, if that.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Chicago ML
Peralta hasn’t been near as good as Hendricks, but he hasn’t been that bad either.
The Chicago Cubs have already wrapped up the National League Central and don’t need the win, but the two teams have a history against one another and the crowd at Wrigley will be getting ready for the postseason.
If any team is going to have luck against Peralta, it’s the Cubs.
The entire line up of the Cubs can catch fire with one swing of the bat from anyone on the roster and turn a close game into a blowout in an inning.
I think Peralta will be strong throughout the first six innings, but look for the Cubs to lite things up against Milwaukee’s bullpen
