The Milwaukee Brewers also split their last 6 games, and scored 12 runs in their last 3. They are sitting on .474 win percentage and need to win if they hope to climb the National League ladder. Justin Smoak and Luis Urias led the team with 2 RBIs each. Christian Yelich has 12 RBIs for the team but the former MVP is having a lot of struggle with the bat with a BAA at .176 this season, which is far from his glory days in the past seasons. Milwaukee is one of the worst hitting teams for the season at .212 team BAA which is 28th in the league, with 74 runs made which is 24th. The Brewers are now sitting in the middle of the National League in 8th place with a 9-10 record, and are 3rd in the NL Central Division. Josh Lindblom will start for the Brewers in the final game.

Milwaukee Brewers vs Chicago Cubs. MLB’s pick for the series finale will go to the Chicago Cubs -140. Lindblom looks good on the mound with a high strikeout rate, but Lester is playing great this season as well. Lester only allowed 2 earned runs in 17 innings, which is bad for a team with a .212 batting average. With Christial Yelich far from MVP form, the Brewers will continue to struggle if he doesn’t step up. Chicago is 7-2 in their last 9 games in Wrigley Field, and will most likely tie this series up to a predicted score of 9-4.
