After 10-game home stand, Brewers head to Wrigley


CHICAGO — After 10 consecutive games at home, in which the Milwaukee Brewers went 8-2, they finally head to the road — but not that far.

The Brewers (23-16) face the Chicago Cubs (21-13) Friday in the first of a three-game series. Milwaukee is 2-1 against the Cubs this season — two of those games, they scored a combined 23 and 22 runs.

Coverage begins at 12:45 p.m. on WKTY 96.7 FM / 580 AM

Wednesday, Christian Yelich hit his MLB-leading 16th home run, as the Brewers swept the Nationals.

Fifteen of Yelich’s home runs this season have come at Miller Park. And 12 of them have come against right-handed pitchers.  

The Cubs will throw impressive lefty Jose Quintana today.  

The 30-year-old has been good all season, except one start — against the Brewers.

In that April 5 loss, he gave up eight earned runs in three innings, as the Brewers won 13-10. Yelich didn’t homer in that one, however.

Since then, Quintana has given up just five runs in his last 32⅔ innings, where he’s gone 4-0. Quintana has 40 strikeouts and 11 walks in 39 innings this season.

Countering, Milwaukee sends Gio Gonzalez (0-0) to the mound. The newly acquired veteran has been impressive in his two starts since signing the Brewers.

He struck out seven and walked none in 5⅓ innings last time out, giving up just one earned run — a 4-3 win over the New York Mets.
