The Milwaukee Brewers will be hitting balls against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field in Chicago on Friday, July 24, 2020 at 7:10 PM ET. Milwaukee won 89 games last season and will be playing this year with a lot of new faces and reinforced line-up. While Chicago recorded a disappointing 84 wins last year, but still, the Cubs are not out of the league’s track. The Chicago Cubs still have the power bats in their roster that won a title not too long ago.

Milwaukee Brewers will be lining up four new batters on the opening day in Eric Sogard, Avisail Garcia, Justin Smoak, and Omar Narvaez. Milwaukee’s fighting chance will be backed-up by MVP Christian Yelich who will be leading the starting rotation. Brandon Woodruff will be securing the ball for the Brewers, he was 11-3 with a 3.62 Earned Run Average (ERA) and 143 strikeouts last season. In his career, Woodruff is 0-0 with a 6.75 ERA and 19 strikeouts against the Cubs. Veteran Slugger Ryan Braun will be the designated hitter and welcome asset for the Brewers.

This group averaged .283 at the plate with 111 home runs and 320 Runs Batted In (RBI) last season. Kyle Schwarber, despite his strikeouts oftentimes, contributed 38 home runs for the Cubs last season. While Kyle Hendricks, having a record of 11-10 with a 3.46 ERA and 150 strikeouts last season, will be getting the ball for the Chicago Cubs. Hendricks, in his career against the Brewers, posted 8-6 with a 3.08 ERA and 109 strike outs.

The Milwaukee Brewers’ pitching staff will be led by 27-year old right-hander Brandon Woodruff. Eric Lauer was expected to be in the starting rotation just behind Woodruff, but the latter decided not to play this season due to the coronavirus.
