Cubs Look For First Three Game Win Streak Against Brewers

It's almost halfway through the 2011 baseball season and the Cubs are still the only major league team that has yet to win three games in a row. But, after two late victories against the Brewers, the North Siders are now in a position to accomplish that feat on Wednesday night, weather permitting.

Starting for the Cubs will be Carlos Zambrano. The focus of recent media attention over controversial remarks made about the team, Big Z has actually been a solid starter for the Cubs in the 2011 season. So far he's 5-3 with a 4.40 ERA and 1.31 WHIP. In his last game against the Brewers, Zambrano earned the win while throwing six innings, giving up four runs on seven hits and striking out five. In that game, Yuniesky Betancourt was 2-for-3 against Zambrano, and Prince Fielder was 1-for-2 with a home run and a walk.

Pitching for Milwaukee will be Chris Narveson. Narveson is 3-4 on the year with a 4.32 ERA and 1.37 WHIP. In his last start against the Cubs, he pitching seven shutout innings, giving up just six hits and a single walk while striking out nine. In that game, Geovany Soto was 1-for-2 with a walk.

The weather in Chicago is forecast to be rainy, with a game time temperature in the upper 60's. Weather permitting, first pitch will be at 7:05 P.M., CDT, and the game will be televised on CSN and FSN.
