Quintana shuts down Brewers, Cubs head home after 3-0 win

Quintana shuts down Brewers, Cubs head home after 3-0 win

Now we're in the Miller Park nosebleeds for this 2-on-1 beatdown. "Three shutouts in a seven-game homestand, that is probably the surprising thing for me". But the Brewers committed 11 errors over their last six games, including a pair in the ninth inning that led to a four-run rally by the Cubs on Saturday.

"It's probably one of the worst games to go out there and not have your stuff and kind of give it up", said Davies, the Brewers' leader a year ago in victories (17), starts (33) and innings (191 1/3). Maddon said Rizzo was feeling better but he didn't want to rush it. When it became clear the weather was going to cause trouble, the game was pushed back one hour to handle the effects of the inclement weather as ground crews kicked into gear trying to get the field and stadium cleared of snow.

Brandon Morrow got three outs for his first save since signing with the Cubs in the offseason.

A new year and a new and improved Ben Zobrist.

He has fared well against the Cubs in the past, going 5-4 with a 3.90 ERA in 10 career starts, including a 2-2 mark with a 3.66 ERA against Chicago last season. Nova allowed five runs in 5.1 innings against the Twins last time out, and he was tagged with his first loss of the season.

Hey hey
Hey hey

Yelich said he did not suffer a setback. Stocked with outfield depth, Milwaukee can give more playing time to slugger Domingo Santana.

I'm going to take a flier on the sloppy Brewers this afternoon. He's not expected to need a disabled list stint but the injury is serious enough for him to be held out today. It was the franchise's longest road trip to open the season since a 12-game jaunt in 1899.

The Cincinnati Reds could turn to Cliff Pennington or Phil Gosselin at third after Eugenio Suarez broke his right thumb when he was hit by a pitch during Sunday's 5-0 loss at Pittsburgh.

Brewers: RHP Chase Anderson (0-0) will make his third start, trying to rebound from a no-decision Tuesday when he allowed four runs in four innings against St. Louis.
