Cubs Try To Take Two From Brew Crew

After a thrilling win in the first game of their series against the Brewers, the Cubs will try to go for two in a row against the Milwaukee Brewers at Wrigley Field.

Starting for the Cubs will be Randy Wells, making his third start off the disabled list. Wells' last start was cut short by a rain delay -- he only pitched 2.1 innings against the Phillies, giving up 3 runs in that span. In his career against the Brewers, Wells is 2-2 with a 4.54 ERA and 1.49 WHIP. Ryan Braun has a .353 career average against Wells with a double, while Prince Fielder holds a .400 average and a home run.

Pitching for the Brewers will be Yovani Gallardo. Gallardo is 8-3 with a 3.96 ERA and 1.40 WHIP on the season. In his last start, against the Mets, he pitched just four innings, giving up four runs on ten hits. In his last game against the Cubs he pitched 5.0 innings, giving up four runs on seven hits. Aramis Ramirez was 3-for-3 in that game, with three doubles.

The weather in Chicago is expected to be partly cloudy, with a game time temperature in the low-70s. First pitch is at 7:05 P.M., CDT, and the game will be televised on CSN and FSN.
