The MLB is back in action today as the Milwaukee Brewers and the Chicago Cubs. This is game two of a three-game series, which will take place at Wrigley Field.
Milwaukee Brewers Form
The Brewers are a team that is at the 3rd spot in the NL Central with 2.5 games behind the Cardinals for the top spot. So, the Brewers are in the hunt for an NL Wild Card spot. The Brewers are currently 1.5 games behind the Phillies and the Nationals for the second slot in the National League. Therefore, the Brewers will need to keep winning in order to get in the postseason. However, that will be hard as their recent form stands at 4-6.
On the offensive side of the game, the Brewers score an average of 4.83 runs per game. Also, they are 5th in the league with 1.62 home runs per game. On the mound, they are 19th in the league in ERA at 4.64.
Chicago Cubs Form
The Cubs are on the 2nd spot in the NL Central with 0.5 games behind the Cardinals for the top spot in the division. Also, the Cubs are currently 1.5 games ahead of the Brewers for the second slot in the National League.
Therefore, it is safe to say that this is a very important game against a direct rival. The Cubs have won three of their last five games and they have gone 11-9 since the All-Star Break.
On the offensive side of the game, the Cubs score an average of 4.83 runs per game. Also, they are 9th in the league with 1.54 home runs per game. On the mound, they are placed on the 5th spot in the
league in ERA at 4.02.
The Cubs have been playing well lately and they will head into this game with winning momentum on their side. Moreover, the Brewers are not in a good form at the moment and it seems that they are falling behind in the race for a playoff spot. Therefore, I expect a win for the Cubs in this one.
