The Chicago Cubs and the Milwaukee Brewers will meet up on the MLB circuit Saturday.
The Cubs powered out a 10-5 win in the Thursday opener of this set, then on Friday in game two Milwaukee evened it up. The Brewers posted four runs in the third and cruised to a 7-1 win.
The Cubs will send out Yu Darvish in the start Saturday. Across 152.1 innings and a 5-6 record this year Darvish has a 4.25 ERA with 183 Ks and 52 BBs.
Over on the Brewers’ side, they’re going with Gio Gonzalez on Saturday. Over his 67.1 innings and 2-2 mark so far Gonzalez has a 4.14 ERA with 60 Ks and 32 BBs.
The Cubs are 4-0 in Darvish’s last four Saturday starts and 6-2 in his last eight after a quality starts. Chicago is 1-5 in Darvish’s last six road starts and the under is 5-1-1 in the Cubs’ last seven Saturday games.
Meanwhile, the Brewers are 4-0 in their last four Saturday games and 9-2 in Gonzalez’s last 11 home starts. Milwaukee is 15-6 in Gonzalez’s last 21 starts and 8-3 in his last 11 with five days’ rest.
Darvish blew up for six earned in 5.1 innings against the Giants last month, but otherwise he has two quality starts in his last three games, giving up one earned in 15.0 innings.
As for Gonzalez, he coughed up seven earned in 5.0 innings against the Cardinals but posted zero earned on zero hits in 3.0 at Wrigley his last time up. Still, I probably trust Darvish a little more right now so I’m going Cubs.
