Chicago Cubs vs. Milwaukee Brewers preview, Wednesday 6/13, 1:10 CT

The Cubs look to take this three-game series in Milwaukee. Notes for a (hopefully) meatloaf Wednesday: Mike Montgomery has allowed one or fewer runs while going at least five innings in each of his first three starts this season. He’s the first Cub to do that since Jon Lester last season. Just four Cubs starters since 1908 have done so in each of their first four Cubs starts to a season: Hippo Vaughn in 1919, Greg Maddux in 2006, Rich Harden in 2008 and Jason Hammel in 2016. Happy birthday to two Cubs pitchers. Pedro Strop turns 33 today, and Drew Smyly is celebrating his 29th...

The Cubs’ wives charity softball game was a huge success

The Cubs’ wives charity softball game was a huge success

They might have lost, but they raised money for a great cause. The Cubs and Brewers played two games on Tuesday, even though the official schedule only listed one. Ahead of the official MLB-sanctioned night game, the Cubs’ wives and girlfriends played a charity softball match against the wives and girlfriends of the Brewers players. The Cubs team — who all sported the classic high socks, nice choice — were raising money for Cubs Charities, and the game raked in over $8,000 (final totals are pending how much was raised on raffle prizes). The funds will be divided between the Brewers...

2018 Cubs Heroes and Goats: Game 64

2018 Cubs Heroes and Goats: Game 64

Cubs bats shutdown by Brewers pitching as series evens. It has been fun watching the Cubs shut down the Brewers bats so completely this year. It is easy to get spoiled by that. The Brewers are a good team, though, and they were unlikely to continue to go quietly. Finally, after nine games in the season series previously and just one walkoff win, the Brewers won convincingly. There wasn’t a lot of offense by either team last night, but the Brewers bunched their hits and walks just well enough to turn seven hits and three walks into four runs. On a night when Brewers pitching held the Cubs...

Chicago Cubs: Tyler Chatwood not to blame for team’s Tuesday loss

Despite turning in a solid performance against Milwaukee Tuesday night, Chicago Cubs right-hander Tyler Chatwood once again assumed the role of scapegoat. The bats giveth and the bats taketh away. One day after the offense rallied in 11 to top the Brewers and assume first place, the Chicago Cubs managed just two hits in a […] Chicago Cubs: Tyler Chatwood not to blame for team’s Tuesday loss - Cubbies Crib - Cubbies Crib - A Chicago Cubs Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Brewers 4, Cubs 0: Just the facts

Brewers 4, Cubs 0: Just the facts

I watched this game so you didn’t have to. Tyler Chatwood walked only two batters in five innings in Tuesday’s 4-0 Cubs loss to the Brewers. Yay? Well, yes, yay for this, at least: Tyler Chatwood this season - number of batters faced before first walk of game (in order by start):0, 11, 2, 1, 0, 0, 6, 12, 2, 1, 0, 3, 10— Christopher Kamka (@ckamka) June 13, 2018 That’s about the only positive takeaway I can post about this otherwise dull, drab defeat. The Cubs managed just two singles and two walks; just one Cubs runner got past first base: Ben Zobrist, in the second inning,...

Milwaukee Brewers: Chase Anderson finally turning the corner?

For the first two months, Milwaukee Brewers ace Chase Anderson was not pitching like the ace we thought him to be. But he could be getting back into form after last night’s performance. Coming into his start against the Chicago Cubs, Anderson had a 4.57 ERA through his first 12 starts. He had allowed at […] Milwaukee Brewers: Chase Anderson finally turning the corner? - Reviewing the Brew - Reviewing the Brew - A Milwaukee Brewers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Brewers shutout the Cubs, take back first place in National League

Brewers shutout the Cubs, take back first place in National League

Chase Anderson led the way in a two-hit shutout. The Milwaukee Brewers shutout the Chicago Cubs in a 4-0 victory. This is Milwaukee’s first shutout of Chicago at Miller Park in four years. Not only did the Crew limit the Cubs to two hits, they also take back the lead in the division and the National League. Oh, one more thing. The Brewers are the first team in the National League to 40 wins. Milwaukee got ahead at the word “go.” With Eric Thames and Lorenzo Cain on base, Travis Shaw laced a double down the line that scored both runners, bringing the Brewers up 2-0. The play of the...

Milwaukee Brewers place Matt Albers on disabled list, recall Jorge Lopez

Milwaukee Brewers place Matt Albers on disabled list, recall Jorge Lopez

His shoulder is ailing. Matt Albers had his worst outing of the season last night, taking the loss after allowing five Cubs’ earned runs in the 11th inning of a 7-2 defeat. It turns out he had an excuse for his ineffectiveness: RHP Matt Albers (right shoulder) has been placed on the 10-day disabled list. RHP Jorge López has been recalled from Triple-A @skysox. pic.twitter.com/klzaSkZmta— Milwaukee Brewers (@Brewers) June 12, 2018 Counsell said Albers reported soreness in shoulder after game last night and had been bothering him a bit. Thought could pitch through it. Instead will...
