Brewers have gone 8-2 in their last ten games and have actually lost ground to the Cubs who have gone 9-1 in the that same time frame.   So this series features two teams that are red hot at the moment.  The Cubs are starting three left handed pitchers this series so it will be interesting to see what lineups Counsel puts out there over the next three days.  Sunday's game is the night game on ESPN.  The last time the Brewers played on Sunday night baseball was in September of 2013.

Game 1:  Gio Gonzalez (0-0, 2.61)  vs  Jose Quintana (4-1, 3.40)
Game 2:  Zach Davies (4-0, 1.56)  vs  Cole Hamels (3-0, 3.38)
Game 3:  Jhoulys Chacin (3-3, 5.03)  vs  Jon Lester (2-1, 1.41) 
You don't pick the moment, the moment picks you.

Per Adam McCalvy, Travis Shaw has been benched for the entire series to "work on some things with his swing" or something to that effect.

Noted first-ballot Wrigley Field HOF'er Ryan Braun got things started with a HR into a stiff breeze in the fourth as Gio Gonzalez would go 5 2/3 scoreless with Corbin Burnes preserving the lead by punching out Javy Baez to end a Cubs threat in the sixth. The Brewers would add two runs each in the top of the 7th, 8th and 9th and ultimately coast to a 7-0 victory in the opener.

Miserable May conditions led to a shortage in offense as the game would go 15 innings and only see 13 total hits between the two teams (just 4 from an absolutely putrid Milwaukee). Brewers got good pitching work from Zach Davies (another quality start), Jeremy Jeffress, Corbin Burnes, Josh Hader and Burch Smith, but ultimately Smith would concede a walk-off to Willson Contreras in the 15th after 3 1/3 scoreless in relief and the Cubs won, 2-1.

More hits today, but the bug-a-boo of RISP was ultimately an undoing as the Cubs take 2 of 3 with a 4-1 victory on Sunday Night Baseball.
