Pre-Gamin’: Brewers at Cubs (1:20 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

Kyle Hendricks has had six “bad” games this season out of 23 starts. In the other 17 outings, he’s gone at least six innings with 3 or fewer earned runs, including nine starts with 1 or no earned runs. So on the whole, he’s had a pretty solid, if understated, season: 3.68 ERA; 5.1 BB%, tons of weak contact.

Unfortunately, he’s going up against Brandon Woodruff this afternoon, who’s allowed more than 3 earned runs only twice all season, and one of those times was in Colorado. Woodruff is also striking out over 30% of the batters he faces, which, well, you saw the game last night, right?

Hendricks gives the Cubs their best chance of beating the Brewers, but the offense has a tough road ahead of them. Go Cubs.
