Cubs' Blowout Loss to Brewers One of Worst in Rivalry's History

Cubs Game Notes For Friday vs. Milwaukee

Yankees 3, Rangers 1 • Aroldis Chapman earned his first save since being removed as closer to finish a one-hitter in New York's road win.

A's 11-11, Astros 1-4 • Normally reliable Houston reliever Chris Devenski allowed two runs in the seventh inning, including Chad Pinder's tiebreaking homer with two outs, and Houston was swept a doubleheader at Oakland.

After splitting a four-game series at Pittsburgh earlier this week, the Cubs return home where they've won nine of their last 10 games.

The Milwaukee Brewers sit just four games back in the NL Central and three back of the Colorado Rockies for the second Wild Card spot entering play on Saturday.

Nelson was enjoying the best season of his career; he's 12-6 on the season with a 3.49 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 199 strikeouts in 175.1 innings pitched. The 28-year-old injured his shoulder while sliding back to first base in Friday's 2-0 win over the Cubs, and while it's unclear if the issue will require surgery to fix, it will leave him sidelined until 2018 regardless. At times this season, he was productive. The right-hander threw four-hit ball over five innings, while striking out seven and walking two en route to winning his third straight start. He's walked 18 and struck out 17 for an ERA of 10.13. With so many pitchers on rosters in the final month of the season, a competing team can mix-and-match as much as they'd like throughout the game in order to secure a victory.

In Garza's defense, the Brewer hitters didn't show up again. They were unable to find that big clutch hit though.
