It’s lefty Cole Hamels (7-5, 3.69) for Chicago, and he might be in his final couple starts as a Cub as the 35-year-old is going to be a free agent after the season. The Cubs will bring him back, but it won’t be at near the $20 million this season he is making. Some think Hamels will go back to Philadelphia, where he was a World Series MVP and started his career.
It’s Hamels’ second straight outing vs. the Brewers. At Wrigley Field, he allowed five hits and two runs over six innings but was a tough-luck loser as Chicago was shut out last Saturday. The only scoring in the match arrived on a two-run only by Manny Pina in the very first inning. Hamels is 1-1 with a 1.88 ERA in four starts vs. Milwaukee in 2019. The Brewers are hitting .217 him off have struck out 23 days in 24 innings.
Hernan Perez doesn’t play with every day for the Brewers but hope him Friday contemplating he is 10-for-19 with two doubles, a triple and homer profession. Ryan Braun is a .283 hitter off Hamels using three homers in 46 at-bats. Christian Yelich is 8-for-32 with a homer, three doubles and eight strikeouts.
Brewers starter Zach Davies (8-7, 3.76) has not won since July 18 at Arizona. The Brewers had lost five straight of his excursions but changed last weekend opposite Hamels when Davies drove 4.2 shutout innings, allowing four hits. For whatever reason, Brewers manager Craig Counsell removed out Davies one shy of qualifying for a success even though 77 pitches had thrown. Hamels doubled with one out at Jason Heyward accompanied using a lineout and the fifth. Counsell brought to confront Nicholas Castellanos, who flied out to end the inning.
Davies is currently 1-2 with a 4.21 ERA in five starts this season against the Cubs but has a very pleasant 3.69 ERA in 18 career starts against them. Kris Bryant is a livelihood .347 hitter off him. Javier Baez, that has been battling with a thumb issue, is 10-for-33 using 10 strikeouts but also a homer. Kyle Schwarber has four homers in 28 at-bats. Jason Heyward is only 5-for-34 off Davies.
Not a massive lean onto the side since the Cubs are awful on the road for the large part this season and the Brewers well over .500 at home. We’ll stay with the complete.
