Ryan Dempster will make his 10th start of the season for the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday, and he's still looking for his first victory. The 35-year old righty takes the mound at Miller Park against Yovani Gallardo and the Milwaukee Brewers with impressive numbers: a 2.90 ERA and 1.15 WHIP. Still, Dempster is 0-3 and will now face the tall task of trying to break the Cubs' 11-game road losing streak.

Gallardo has been up-and-down this season. The 26-year old righty enters at 4-4 with a 4.22 ERA and 1.45 WHIP. Gallardo has faced the Cubs just once this year, earning a victory in a 2-1 Brewers win on April 11.

Game date/time: Tuesday, June 5, 7:10 p.m. CT

Location: Miller Park, Milwaukee, WI

TV: WGN
