The Cubs have won nine of their last 10 games when scoring more than three runs. Anthony Rizzo leads Chicago with 117 hits and 63 RBI while Starlin Castro and Kris Bryant have combined for 111 RBI.

Haren is 2-1 with a 1.85 ERA and 28 strikeouts in his career against the Brewers.
The Brewers are 4-1 in their last 5 games following an off day and 5-2 in Jungmanns last 7 starts. The Cubs are 4-0 in their last 4 during game 1 of a series and 2-5 in their last 7 games following an off day. The Brewers are 0-4 in the last 4 meetings.
The Cubs simply can't lose right now. They also have a pretty consistent pitcher on the hill in Haren who is going to give them a fair shot to win another game. Give me the Cubs at home.
