Pre-Gamin’: Cubs at Brewers (7:10 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

Tonight, the Cubs and Brewers will start their final series of the year with Justin Steele taking on Freddy Peralta.

The Cubs faced Peralta just last weekend, tagging him for just two earned runs on four hits and three walks over 6.0 innings pitched. The Cubs went after the Brewers bullpen just fine after that (4 runs in 3.0 IP), but Peralta was generally able to hold them down.

Steele also faced the Brewers last weekend, and he dominated: 6.0 IP, 2H, 0ER, 1BB, 9Ks. Facing the same team in short order usually works in favor of the hitters, but Steele has been on something special lately:

Plus, the Brewers (86 wRC+) are one of the bottom five offenses against left-handed pitching this season. So he’s got that going for him, as well.
