Time to face the best team in baseball once again...

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports




Last time out Kyle Hendricks held the Brewers to one run over five innings. This will be the first time this season Chase Anderson has faced the Cubs. He's been shaky is last five starts--after not allowing a run in his first two--but his last outing (6 IP, 3 ER) was the best of the bunch. So maybe he's starting to find his groove again.

A bit of good news: Ryan Braun is back in the lineup tonight. He missed a couple of games with a sore wrist. He said x-rays didn't show anything serious and now that he's back playing that should put a lot of concerns to rest. With Scooter Gennett back at second we're only Michael Reed in center away from the optimized Brewers lineup!
