If familiarity breeds contempt, there should be animosity aplenty on Saturday when the Chicago Cubs and the Milwaukee Brewers meet at Miller Park.

The Cubs will give the ball to starter Kyle Hendricks in this one. Right hander Hendricks is 4-3 this season with a 3.96 ERA.

Starting this game for the Brewers will be Junior Guerra. The right hander has a 5.22 ERA to go along with a 1-4 record this season.

Hendricks came off the disabled list to start Monday against the crosstown White Sox, allowing one run and eight hits over 4 1/3 innings. The 27-year-old could stand to be more efficient as he was lifted after 92 pitches, but he didn’t issue a walk, which is a good sign for a pitcher who relies on command. Hendricks is 6-3 with a 2.80 ERA in 12 career starts against the Brewers, with a win and a no-decision this season.

Guerra is winless in nine turns since May 31 and hasn’t recorded a quality start in his last five. The 32-year-old Venezuelan surrendered five runs in four-plus innings Sunday at Philadelphia and has served up at least one home run in nine straight outings. Guerra is 1-0 with a 2.03 ERA in two starts against the Cubs, with both occurring last season.

Oddsmakers currently have the Cubs listed as 173-moneyline favorites versus the Brewers, while the game’s total is sitting at 10.

The Milwaukee Brewers pulled out of their tailspin for a critical win in the opener of their three-game series against the visiting Chicago Cubs. The Brewers now can reclaim first place in the National League Central standings with a second consecutive victory over the defending world champions on Saturday.

Milwaukee held on for a 2-1 triumph in Friday’s series opener, pulling within one-half game of Chicago. The Cubs had been red-hot to start the second half, turning a 5 1/2-game deficit in the division at the All-Star break into a 1 1/2-game lead entering this series. The Brewers have won 10 of their last 12 at home and were happy to get back after a 2-8 road trip. Cubs pitcher Kyle Hendricks also enjoys Miller Park, where he is 4-1 with a 2.52 ERA in six starts.

Milwaukee was a 2-1 winner in its last match on the road against the Cubs. They won as +121 underdogs, while the total score of 3 made winners of UNDER bettors.

Last time out for Chicago, they were a 2-1 loser as they battled the Brewers on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Brewers at 121 were rewarded, while the 3 combined runs moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.
