Milwaukee Brewers vs. Chicago Cubs, 4-29-2018 - Prediction & Preview

Bryant out of lineup for 3rd game in row

After dropping the first two games of their four-game series at Wrigley, the Milwaukee Brewers will try to avoid going 0-3 versus the Chicago Cubs on Saturday.

"Just a really tightly, well-played baseball game", Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. Darvish is 0-2 with a 5.26 ERA on the year, but he is off his best start of the year as he allowed no ERs on three hits and two walks while striking out eight in 6.0 innings of work in Chicago's 3-2 win on Friday. Manaea (4-2) no-hit Boston last Saturday and didn't allow a hit Friday until the fourth inning.

Darvish got his second big league double and fifth hit with a drive into the right-field corner in the fifth inning against Brent Suter.

When Yu Darvish signed a $126 million contract to join the Cubs in the offseason, he was viewed as a free agent prize.

He fell behind right at the start after Lorenzo Cain reached second as right fielder Jason Heyward dropped his fly leading off the game.

Darvish was provided a lead the bottom half when Albert Almora Jr. doubled and scored on a single by Javier Baez, who stole second and came home on Anthony Rizzo's single.

Lindsey Graham told Fox News : "Donald Trump convinced North Korea and China - he was serious about bringing about change". Messer said the President deserves the award for his role in getting peace talks started between North and South Korea.

But the Brewers loaded the bases against Steve Cishek in the seventh, and tied it on Christian Yelich's sacrifice fly off Brian Duensing. Dan Jennings took the loss.

Pedro Strop (3-0) retired Jesus Aguilar - his only batter - on a flyout that ended the seventh. Brandon Morrow, the Cubs' fifth reliever, pitched a flawless ninth for his sixth save in six chances.

Rangers 6, Blue Jays 4 • Ronald Guzman hit a tiebreaking two-run single in the sixth inning, and Texas beat visiting Toronto.

Milwaukee lost its second straight one-run game to the Cubs on a chilly, windy day. Davidson, who drove in three runs, has seven home runs this season - five against the Royals.

Pirates 6, Cardinals 5, 11 innings: Starling Marte's game-ending single in the 11th inning lifted the Pittsburgh Pirates to a victory over the St. Louis Cardinals in Pittsburgh. Not only has he yet to win his first game for the Cubs, but he has been hit hard, has allowed at least four earned runs and has failed to get out of the fifth inning in three of his four starts.

Carl Edwards Jr. pitched a ideal eighth, and Brandon Morrow finished it off with a flawless ninth, striking out Ryan Braun for his sixth save.
