Milwaukee Brewers vs. Chicago Cubs, last game of the series. A victory for each one until now. The Cubs could barely win the second game for a single run. Hamels and Davies had a tough battle last night and today the same is expected between Chacin and Lester. But the Brewers were lethal in the first game of the series by winning seven runs without allowing the Cubs to run. The home team has the advantage at home with a good pitcher. The Brewers with Chacin have not had good luck this season.
Chicago Cubs: At home with the best pitcher.
The Cubs won the second game 2-1 against the Brewers. It was a heavy game from the beginning. One run for each team in the fifth inning and the last run was in the tenth inning. Hamels allowed a home run for 3.08 ERA. Wilson Contreras was the best with 1 run, 2 hits and 1 RBI. Heyward could barely contribute one hit in seven at bats. The performance was much better compared to the first game in the series where the Cubs could not score runs.
At home the Cubs are scoring an average of 4.40 runs per game, 4.74 walks, 7.40 hits, 1.16 home runs and 14.84 left on base. The defense is strong, the team only allows 2.95 runs per game, 3.68 walks, 9.63 strike outs, 6.90 hits and 14.11 left on base. Three defeats in the last ten games at home. 14-6 overall.
Jon Lester this season has two victories in three games. 66.70% effectiveness, 1.41 ERA, 32.0 pitched innings, 26 hits allowed, 7 runs allowed and three home runs. 1,031 WHIP for Lester this season. The two victories were at home for Lester and the loss was also at home against the Dodgers in the last of that 1-2 series.
Milwaukee Brewers: The first game was easy.
The Brewers know they must improve the offensive work if they want to win tonight. The first game of the series won 0-7 with Gio Gonzalez as a pitcher. But Davies was not as efficient in the second game despite receiving only one run. On the road the record is negative for the Brewers this season. Eight victories and nine defeats. 6-4 in the last ten games on the road. Before this series against the Cubs, the team had won a series against the Mets 2-1.

Jhoulys Chacin with a bad season so far. Three victories and three defeats for Chacin. 5.03 ERA, 39.1 pitched innings, 30 hits allowed, 22 runs allowed, 8 home runs with 29 strike outs.
