The Cubs come into Milwaukee this weekend looking to build off the momentum from that enormous home run in St. Louis by Kyle Schwarber that I’m assuming has finally landed.
This looks like a redux of Opening Night, with the outfield setting up the same and Javy Baez once more hitting ninth and playing second. From the looks of it, Joe Maddon is really going to be bringing Albert Almora along slowly.
Look for Kris Bryant to quiet the whispers about his lack of production with some very loud noises. Actually, this game — and the whole series — has a nice get-right feel all the way around.
First pitch from Milwaukee is at 7:10pm CT as Brett Anderson gets set to make his Cubs debut.
