Divisional bragging rights will be on the line on Wednesday when the Milwaukee Brewers and the Chicago Cubs meet at Wrigley Field.

Tommy Milone will be the starting pitcher for the Brewers on this day. Left hander Milone is 1-0 this season with a 7.36 ERA.

Meanwhile, it’ll be Kyle Hendricks who starts for the Cubs. Right hander Hendricks is 1-1 with a 5.73 ERA so far this season.


Milone has stepped into the rotation in place of the injured Junior Guerra, and he pitched well enough to record his first win of the season last time out. The 30-year-old held Cincinnati to three runs and six hits over five innings on Friday, although he did surrender a pair of home runs. Milone made his first start against the Cubs on April 8 in Milwaukee, allowing four runs and nine hits over four frames in a no-decision.

Hendricks will be pitching on regular rest for the first time this season, and he hopes that leads to sharper command. The 27-year-old has yet to record a quality start, as he gave up four runs over six frames in a win at Milwaukee on April 8 and lasted just five innings while allowing three runs in a loss to Pittsburgh on Friday. Hendricks is 6-3 with a 2.47 ERA in 11 career starts against the Brewers.

Oddsmakers currently have the Cubs listed as 198-moneyline favorites versus the Brewers, while the game’s total is sitting at 7.

The Chicago Cubs have done their best to carry the thrill of last October’s historic World Series run into April, as nine of their first 14 games have been decided by fewer than three runs. The latest was a comeback victory that set up the rubber match of their three-game series against the visiting Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday afternoon.

The Cubs rallied for a 9-7 win over their division rivals on Tuesday, snapping a four-game losing streak and evening the series after the Brewers posted a 6-3 victory in the opener. Chicago’s bullpen has been a concern early on, but five relievers combined to allow one run over 5 1/3 innings on Tuesday and retire 15 of Milwaukee’s last 16 batters. They even managed to cool off Brewers slugger Eric Thames, who recorded hits in his first three at-bats to extend his hitting streak to 11 games but had his string of five straight games with a home run come to an end. The loss was just the second of the Brewers’ nine-game road trip, which concludes Wednesday before the team begins a 10-game homestand the following day.
