Memorial Day is the stereotypical day that Major League Baseball fans first look at the standings for the season. For Chicago Cubs fans, the standings tell a very different story now than they did at the end of April.

Entering play on Tuesday against the Milwaukee Brewers, the Cubs are 27-27. The record is good for second place in the National League Central, 4.5 games behind the Milwaukee Brewers for first place.

The Cubs' issue is that they have three more games against the Brewers, and there's a scenario where they leave Milwaukee on Thursday while trailing the Brewers by 7.5 games. The old adage of it getting late early certainly applies to the Cubs' stretch.

Probable starting pitchers

  • Ben Brown will start for the Cubs on Tuesday night. Brown has been excellent in his rookie season with the Cubs, posting a 3.20 ERA through 12 appearances. While Brown's long-term future is likely in the starting rotation, it would seem that a move back to the bullpen will be made after this start, and Jordan Wicks will return for the next turn in the rotation.
  • Freddy Peralta will be on the bump for the Brewers. Peralta continues to trend toward being one of the best starting pitchers in the National League, posting a 3.81 ERA through 10 starts this season.
