Brewers Vs. Cubs Preview: Chicago Hopes To Avoid 3rd Straight Loss

The Chicago Cubs will turn to their ace to stop the bleeding when they host the Milwaukee Brewers at Wrigley Field on Wednesday afternoon. Ryan Dempster gets his second start of the season, as the Cubs hope to avoid starting the new campaign 1-5. Dempster pitched well in his debut, a 2-1 loss to the Washington Nationals.

Chicago has lost the first two games of the series, being out-scored by a combined score of 14-9.

Yovani Gallardo will oppose Dempster for the Brewers. The 26-year old righty allowed six earned runs in 3.2 innings against the Cardinals on April 6. Last season, Gallardo has 17-10 with a 3.52 ERA in 33 starts.
