Milwaukee Brewers vs. Chicago Cubs, 4-29-2018 - Prediction & Preview

Yu Darvish was their big acquisition during the offseason, but he has not pitched all that well for the Cubs in the early going.

Maddon may not have been asking for results, just a look, but he got both in a 3-2 win over the Brewers on Friday.

A scary moment came on Sunday, as Chicago Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant was hit in the head with a fastball from Rockies starter German Marquez.

Three relievers combined to keep Mercer stranded, sending the game to extra innings but the Cardinals wound up losing for just the third time in 13 games.

Bryant has reportedly been working in the batting cage the past few days, with the Cubs' training staff monitoring him.

The Cubs' Kyle Schwarber (right) celebrates with third base coach Brian Butterfield after hitting a home run against the Brewers in the sixth inning Thursday at Wrigley Field. He yielded just 3 hits against the Brewers with 8 strikeouts and 2 walks, lowering his ERA from 6.86 to 5.26.

Orioles 6, Tigers 0 • Chris Tillman pitched seven for his first win since last May, Pedro Alvarez went deep twice and Baltimore snapped a five-game skid with a victory over visiting Detroit.

Anderson allowed five hits and walked one in seven innings.

"I still believe tried and true methods, meaning don't be trying to hit home runs all the time, move the baseball with two strikes, use the whole field, make adaptations, make adjustments", he said.

Milwaukee's bullpen hasn't allowed an earned run in 32 consecutive innings. In his career, he has gone 19-31 with a 5.29 ERA in 70 games (61 starts) in his home games and 11-9 with a 3/96 ERA in 28 games (24 starts) during March/ April, plus 16-11 with a 3.37 ERA in 44 games (41 starts) during the daytime, while against the Brewers he has gone 2-1 with a 4.05 ERA in four games (three starts). The National League Central rivals will meet at 2:20 p.m. ET.

The two teams will play again Saturday afternoon with the pre-game show at 12:45. In the first 10 losses of the year, they batted.181 and averaged 1.7 runs a game. I will look for Zach Davies and their pen to have a strong game in this one.

"I'm not gonna get into health and symptoms and stuff", Bryant said."Our team doctor wants to make sure that I get to see my kids grow up and stuff like that".
