Quintana brilliant in win
Cubs lefty Jose Quintana threw 6 2/3 shutout innings last night in a 3-0 home win over Milwaukee as he gave up three hits with seven strikeouts and two walks. Pedro Strop picked up his 13th save as he threw a spotless inning with one strikeout Javier Baez finished 1-for-2 with a walk and a run scored to help lead the offense. Victor Caratini went 2-for-3 with a double and two RBIs.
Brewers held to three hits
Lorenzo Cain and Jesus Aguilar both finished 1-for-4 in yesterday's defeat for the Brewers. The lone other hit was by Hernan Perez with a pinch-hit single. Jhoulys Chacin took the loss as he allowed two runs (one earned) on one hit with five strikeouts and one walk over five innings.
MLB Betting Trends
The under is 13-6-1 in Anderson's last 20 road starts. The under is 22-6 in the last 28 meetings.
The Cubs are 7-1 in Hendricks' last eight starts. Chicago is 43-21 in its last 65 home games.
Hendricks has pitched very well during the second half of the season and while Anderson is typically good against the Cubs, I don't think he'll have enough in the tank today. With Hendricks providing a much different look than Quintana, look for Milwaukee's offense to struggle again as the Cubs take another one.
