EARLY TOP RATED 10* MLB BIG HITTER
Milwaukee vs. Chi Cubs,
08/03/2019 14:20 EDT,
Score: 1 - 4
Money Line: -130 Chi Cubs
The Chicago Cubs had no trouble to roll past the Milwaukee Brewers Friday afternoon and have now won nine of their last 11 home at Wrigley Field. I expect an easy win for the home team here in Game 2 of this three-game series early Saturday.
Cubs' left-hander Cole Hamels (6-3, 2.98 ERA) will make his first start since June 28 after a stint on the IL. Hamels had posted a white hot 1.22 ERA in his last six starts prior to the injury, and I think he'll take up right where he left off. Hamels is 1-0 behind a 2.08 ERA in two turns against Milwaukee this season. The Brewers counter with southpaw colleague Gio Gonzalez (2-1, 3.48 ERA) who left his last outing on July 26 against the Cubs with shoulder tightness.
Brewers are 3-10 in their last 13 road games vs. a left-handed starter. Cubs are 33-16 in their last 49 home games vs. a left-handed starter.
10* play on Chicago Cubs.
