Hmmm...75-43 is a pretty good record. Today Jimmy Nelson (6-12, 4.07) continues his 2016 saga of trying to find 'it'. The Cubs send out Jon Lester (12-4, 2.93). The Brewers only hope might be to try and unsettle him when on the bases. It worked last time, except they lost. The operation was a success, but the patient died.
