Cubs Game Notes For Friday vs. Milwaukee

Reds rookie Luis Castillo allowed a run on four hits over eight innings, striking out 10 and walking nobody to earn his third win of the season. Kyle Schwarber hit a pinch-hit solo homer and Leonys Martin added an RBI double of his own, making up the lone two runs in the loss for the Cubs.

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. Fortunately for the Brewers, they still have plenty to play for between the wild card and the division, despite their laying down in Cincinnati. So far, the teams are 3-3 when playing against each other at Wrigley Field; Milwaukee is looking to finish the season with a winning record at Wrigley Field for the first time since 2013 (6-3) - the Brewers went 9-20 there from 2014-16. Their confidence and resilience has been strong all season, and there's no reason to believe that will change any time soon. The last time came in 2012 when the Brewers knocked off the Cubs 15-4. As the Brewers have shown all year though, baseball isn't always driven by talent. They managed just four hits on the day.

Following his abdication which could be at the end of 2018 or early 2019, his eldest son Crown Prince Naruhito will replace him. In a televised conference he described the princess as someone who quietly watched over him "like the moon".

According to a recent tweet from the Milwaukee Brewers, pitcher Jimmy Nelson will miss the rest of the season.

Nelson's start on Friday was his 29 of the season, tying him for the most in the National League, and his career-high 199 strikeouts rank third in the league in 2017.
