Cubs Vs. Brewers Preview: Chicago Looks To Score Big On Zack Greinke

The Chicago Cubs should have their hands full on Wednesday night as they face the Milwaukee Brewers just one day after a rare blowout victory for the Cubbies. The Brewers' ace, Zack Greinke, is taking the mound, so the Cubs' offense presumably won't have an easy time matching Tuesday's offensive output.

Since joining Milwaukee before last season, Greinke has been nothing short of lights out while pitching at Miller Park. Over 20 starts there, he's 14-0 with a 2.64 ERA and the Brewers have lost just one game at the ballpark with him on the mound.

The Cubs have Paul Maholm going as he looks to bump his win-loss record above .500 on the year. Since pitching seven shutout innings on May 9 to improve his record to 4-2, the Cubs have lost four straight games with him on the mound.

Game date/time: Tuesday, June 6, 7:10 p.m. CT

Location: Miller Park, Milwaukee, WI
