The Cubs totaled eight hits and seven BB with Kris Bryant 3-3 with a solo homer while Ian Happ knocked in two followed Ben Zobrist with an RBI and run. Left hander Jose Quintana draws Sunday’s outing at Miller Park. Quintana absorbed a 6-0 loss at Miami in his first start where he was charged with all six runs in six innings of work.
The Milwaukee Brewers bats were silent Saturday but it was the late inning relief pitching that proved to be costly. Milwaukee starter Zach Davies allowed a run through six frames before Jacob Barnes allowed four 9th inning runs for a BS and loss.
The Brewers attack consisted of four hits and a walk and 13 strikeouts with Eric Thames cracking a solo homer while Lorenzo Cain smacked a sacrifice fly that scored Jett Bandy. Milwaukee sends Chase Anderson to the bump to face the Cubs on Sunday. Anderson did not get a decision in a 5-4 win versus St. Louis with four runs scoring on eight hits in four innings.
Under is 12-3-3 in Chicago Cubs last 18 Sunday games and Chicago Cubs are 2-6 in their last 8 Sunday games and Chicago Cubs are 7-3 in Quintana’s last 10 starts. Milwaukee are 7-1 in their last 8 Sunday games and under is 13-3 in Milwaukee last 16 Sunday games and under is 27-11-2 in Milwaukee last 40 home games. Chicago Cubs are 6-2 in the last 8 meetings in Milwaukee.
The Cubs have had the majority of the success a Miller Park but this matchup is a coin flip and I’d take the home dog if I bet this…
