Game Thread #8: Chicago Cubs (3-3) @ Milwaukee Brewers (4-3)

Be nice to see some solid defense...and maybe a few runs?

The Brewers (4-3) look to rebound from back to back shutout losses tonight against division rival Chicago, and put a little distance between themselves and the Cubs (3-3).

The Cubbies are going with righty Kyle Hendricks (0-0, 1.50) in his second start of the young season, and the Brew Crew is countering with second-year righty Brandon Woodruff (0-0, 5.40 - the second game in a row with a 5.40 ERA on the hill for Milwaukee). Woodruff is making his first start and third appearance.

Anthony Rizzo is out of tonight's line-up for Chicago with back stiffness.
