MLB 2015 Game #10: Cubs vs. BrewersLast night the Chicago Cubs rallied after trailing the Milwaukee Brewers 2-0 through seven innings, Anthony Rizzo belted a three-run homer to take a 3-2 lead. The Cubs added two insurance runs in the ninth to win 5-2.
This evening the Cubs (54-47, .535) and Brewers (44-59, .427) will play the second game of the four-game series in Miller Park. I convinced my supervisor that I needed to work in our office located in Milwaukee's Third Ward today. He agreed.
Tonight the Cubs will send Jason Hammels (5-5, 3.20 ERA) to the mound to face the Brewers' Taylor Jungmann (5-2, 2.14 ERA). The Cubs are currently in third place in the National League Central, 10.5 games behind the front-running St. Louis Cardinals. The north siders sit two games behind the San Francisco Giants for the second National League wild card spot. After dropping the last two games, the Brewers are buried at the bottom of the NL Central, 21.5 games off the pace. In the wild card hunt, the Brew Crew find themselves 13 games off the pace.
Will Starlin Castro still be donning Cubs blue tonight? Will Milwaukee continue parting ways with its high-price stars? The non-waiver trade deadline is 3 p.m. today.
