Tied 1st; —
MIL 7 – CHC 0
Cubs never showed Friday.
Rolled by the Brewers 7-0.
Milwaukee’s won 7-straight.
Mistakes all-around for the Cubs.
On the bases.
A collective dud.
Jose Quintana was the lone soldier.
6.2 IP — 3 ER, 4 H — 3 BB, 6 K
I anticipated a possible letdown against lowly Miami following last weekend’s emotional series against St. Louis.
Not so much yesterday with the Crew a game back and riding a 6-game winning streak.
Not so much considering the Cubs are (4-11) in their last 15 against Milwaukee.
Not so much given the last time these two met at Wrigley it was the Brewers beating the pants off the Cubs in the division tiebreaker game, which led to a wild card game that in turn led to a one-and-done in the postseason.
Offense continues to sputter since scoring 13 runs last Sunday vs. St. Louis.
Friday was the worst of the week.
No hard contact.
No hits with RISP: 0-for-9
Gio Gonzalez breezed through the Cubs lineup.
He has a 1.69 ERA in three starts since re-joining MIL.
Saturday’s no cake walk either.
Zach Davies brings a 1.56 ERA to the hill.
Cubs showing up would be a good start.
NEXT – Sat. vs. MIL, 1:20 p.m. CT
Zach Davies (4-0, 1.56 ERA)
Cole Hamels (3-0, 3.38 ERA)
