Russell homers in defeat

Chicago lost by a score of 3-2 Saturday at Milwaukee to drop to 76-65 overall and 29-41 on the road. Addison Russell paced the Cubs offensively as he ended the game 1-for-4 with a solo home run. Anthony Rizzo finished 0-for-2 with two walks and a run scored. Victor Caratini was 1-for-2 plus a walk. Brandon Kintzler took the loss in relief as he gave up one earned run on one hit with one strikeout and no walks over two-thirds of an inning. Jon Lester draws the start today for Chicago as he enters with a 12-9 record, 4.19 ERA and 1.45 WHIP plus 147 strikeouts over 150 1/3 innings. 

Yelich provides walk-off double

Christian Yelich won it for Milwaukee in the bottom of the ninth inning with an RBI double to give the hosts a 3-2 victory over Chicago. Yelich ended the game 2-for-2 with the double, three walks, a run scored and the winning RBI. Yasmani Grandal finished 2-for-5 with a solo home run. Ben Gamel was 1-for-3 with a walk and an RBI. Josh Hader picked up the win in relief as he walked one and struck out four in scoreless scoreless frames. Adrian Houser gets the start today as he comes in with a 6-5 record, 3.45 ERA and 1.29 WHIP plus 93 strikeouts over 91 1/3 innings.

MLB Betting Trends

Chicago

The Cubs are 4-1 in the last five Lester starts. Chicago is 6-2 in its last eight road games. 

Milwaukee

The Brewers are 5-2 in their last seven games overall. Milwaukee is 2-7 in the last nine Houser starts.

Prediction:

Chicago has been dreadful on the road this season, which has kept it from being a first-place team. While I don't necessarily trust either starting pitcher, Houser has had his moments lately and the Brewers smell blood in the water as they can cut their deficit to just two games for the second NL Wild Card spot with a win today. The crowd will be loud and I like the hosts to get the job done here.
