The Chicago Cubs and Milwaukee Brewers kick-off a three-game series Friday night. What should fans expect when the two teams play this weekend?
Wednesday’s game between the Chicago Cubs and St. Louis Cardinals was postponed due to rain and rescheduled for Thursday. As a result, the Cubs will have a quick turnaround before their weekend series begins.
Friday, the Cubs will kick off a three-game set against the Milwaukee Brewers. The Cubs were 11-8 against their division rivals in 2016, including 4-5 on the road.
The Brewers have lost their first two games of the 2017 season, although both games were close. Monday, they lost to the Colorado Rockies 7-5; Tuesday, they lost 6-5.
The Cubs also have played a pair of close games to open their season. After suffering a walk-off 4-3 loss against the Cardinals Sunday, the Cubs won 2-1 Tuesday night. Wade Davis picked up his first save as a member of the Cubs in the win.
Although the Brewers are 0-2, one should not take them lightly so early in the season. If the Cubs lose Thursday, the two teams could have equal records heading into Friday’s game.
