Game Eighty-Six: Cubs (31-54) vs. Brewers (44-43)
Game Time – 7:05pm C.T. Comcast SportsNet, WGN Radio, XM Radio Channel 183
Location – Miller Park, Milwaukee
Carlos Zambrano (7-3, 3.33) vs. Zach Jackson (1-1, 6.11)
Another rematch and another lefty….you have to hand it to Ned Yost it really knows how to kick a team while they are down. The Cubs face another left-hander tonight in Zach Jackson and will face another in the series finale on Sunday. Carlos Zambrano held the Brewers to 4 runs on 6 hits in 8 innings of work back on June 27th but the error plagued 9th inning cost the Cubs the game against Zach Jackson. Zambrano is 7-1 in his last 12 starts and the only Cubs representative in the upcoming All-Star game has received 6 no decisions since April 30.
The longest winning streak the Cubs have had this season is 3 games, they have exactly that many left before the break. A nice three game winning streak heading into the break would be a great way for the Cubs to spend their four days off.
