An ugly Ending at Milwaukee to the weekend to the Chicago Cubs.
The series opened but according to their old ways on the highway with three straight losses. That might have been a kill shot to the Brewers’ opportunities, but they were able to step up with an impressive weekend at Miller Park. We are going to see whether this can act as kind of a springboard to a deep into the postseason. The weekend did the Brewers as they are now only two matches of a wildcard. The Diamondbacks and the Cubs are involving the Wild Card Game at the Present Time.
It is crazy to believe that the Diamondbacks are there. They’ve been the hottest team in the National League the past few months and have to keep going if they would like to finish the comeback. So far as the Cubs are worried, they focus on the Padres out west and must forget about the past few days. They’ve a 1.5-game advantage on the Diamondbacks entering Monday. Acquiring the Cardinals will be more demanding, as they are 4.5 back in this respect.
The Cubs must learn to win on the road. Should they get in the postseason, something changes, however as it stands now, the Cubs are going to need to win a game that is do-or-die on the road as a wildcard. They are three games behind the Nationals to get homefield advantage in the Wild Card Game.
They confront a beatable Padres staff during the next four days, therefore this needs to be a series for them. They will head afterwards for ten games at home, so it has a chance to go into that homestand with momentum. The Cubs will send out Kyle Hendricks to the bulge for this particular one. He has been an underrated asset for the Cubs at 2019. Cal Quantrill will counter to the Padres. Head below for our complimentary Cubs vs. Padres pick.

Kyle Hendricks continues to be an catalyst of the Cubs’ rotation in 2019. Hendricks has consistently been doing it for the Cubs, although he might not be the pitcher well-known. They have had men like Yu Darvish who have not been the most constant, so Hendricks has been a arm inside their toolbox. Hendricks goes into this matchup with a 3.39 ERA and 1.10 WHIP in 154 innings of work. He is coming off a operation having let just.
In 10 of them, Hendricks has allowed 2 runs or less in his 12 games. He had a couple of trouble spots in there on the street. He had been forged for 6 runs and 7 runs against the Mets and Reds to skew his figures . Hendricks carries a 5.20 ERA and 1.44 WHIP around the street.
That sounds bad, but it has been four poor excursions that have been responsible. In his nine begins on the road, Hendricks has been strong. He’s been strong against the Padres in his career, as they’re hitting .244 at 82 at-bats from Hendricks.
Cal Quantrill has gotten absolutely whacked in his two appearances about the bulge. If we didn’t know any better, I would say the guy is fatigued or injured. Quantrill allowed 8 earned runs against the Dodgers and did the same thing against the Diamondbacks instantly afterwards.
The D-backs throttled Quantrill for 2 made runs and to get a total of 16 runs allowed in 9.1 innings. Quantrill goes to Monday with an ERA of both 11.15 and 1.76 WHIP in his past three showings. Following three days that are ugly look for them to get back on track in San Diego tonight.
