The Chicago Cubs will host the Milwaukee Brewers in game 163 Monday afternoon from the friendly confines of Wrigley Field to decide the winner of the NL Central. The Brewers have yet to officially announce a starter, and the Cubs will send 29-year old left-hander Jose Quintana to the mound. The Cubs own an 11-8 lead in the season-series. The winner of this one will play the winner of the Dodgers/Rockies game in the NLDS, and the losing team will be the loser of the Rockies/Dodgers game.

Brewers Yet to Officially Announce Starter

The Brewers have yet to name a starter for this contest. The Cubs are assuming the Brewers will send Jhoulys Chacin to the mound. Chacin would be pitching on regular rest in this one. The nine-year veteran right-hander was outstanding in the second half, and he features a 3.56 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP paired with a 15-8 record in 187 innings logged on the year. Chacin silenced the Cubs’ offense this season, sporting a 1.59 ERA to go with a 2-2 record in 22.2 innings spread across four starts. Chacin owns a 4-6 record with a remarkable 2.98 ERA in 60.1 career innings against the NL Central foes. If Chacin doesn’t get the start, manager Craig Counsell could turn to Chase Anderson, although it is unlikely. 
rewers offensive resurgence this season. Both collected over 30 homers and 100 RBI’s this year. Yelich was the best hitter in all of baseball down the final stretch, crushing five homers with 16 RBI’s in his last seven games. Yelich only hit .175 with five RBI’s against the Cubs this year, while Aguilar went 10 for 44 with three RBI’s against Chicago. The Brewers are scoring an average of 4.64 runs per game, ranking them 12th in the Major Leagues. The Milwaukee pitching staff holds a sharp 3.75 team ERA, pegging them sixth in the big leagues.

Quintana Aims for Another Dazzling Outing Against Brewers

Jose Quintana will take the mound for the Cubs in game 163 as he aims for his eighth home win of the year. The crafty left-hander was inconsistent at times this season, and he enters this one with a 4.09 ERA and a 1.32 WHIP accompanied with a 13-11 record in 169.1 innings of work. Quintana owns a 3.60 career ERA over his six years in the big leagues, although he has posted an ERA above four in two straight seasons. He dominated the Brewers this season, posting a 4-1 record paired with a stellar 2.17 ERA in six starts, and he stands at 6-2 with a dazzling 1.60 ERA in 10 career starts against Milwaukee.Twitter Ads info and privacy
