Chicago Cubs vs Milwaukee Brewers (By: Mulder)
Wind is blowing IN again today> Around 12 MPH. Weather is also cold again so will not favour batters of course.
Both teams are terrible with runners in scoring position this series and last night we had 10+ Double play balls ( I stopped counting after 9 innings ).
-Under is 13-3 in the last 16 meetings in Chicago.
LHP Lester will start on the mound for the Cubbies. He is 2-1 with a 1.41 ERA> 9.28 K/9. He has nice command> 1.97 BB/9 and limits homers> 0.84 HR/9.
At home Lester posted a dazzling 0.69 ERA, 10.38 K/9, 0.69 BB/9.
Last season he posted a 2.31 ERA>1.20 WHIP against the Crew in 11.2 IP.
For the Cubs we wills ee RHP Chacin on the mound who posted a 5.03 ERA. He pitched even worse than that but he allowed 2 runs in his last two outings over 11 innings pitched. Against the Cubs he had great succes last season. In 28.1 Innings pitched he posted a 1.59 ERA> 0.88 WHIP.
Bullpens depleted with those extra innings yesterday, hence backing the first half under.
