Quick wrap of Game 1: 11 LOB and 2-for-17 with RISP. A reminder that a full recap of both games of this doubleheader will post here Tuesday morning at 8 a.m. CT.

Here’s all the info you’ll need for today’s Game 2.

Cubs lineup:

Brewers lineup:

Drew Smyly, LHP vs. Aaron Ashby, LHP

Drew Smyly had a good April, not so good in May so far. The Brewers OPS vs. LHP is about 100 points lower than it is vs. RHP, so maybe that will work in Smyly's favor tonight.

That's about all I've got.

You might remember Aaron Ashby as the guy who made his MLB debut against the Cubs in June 2021 and served up seven runs in the first inning. That was the game where the Brewers then scored 15 unanswered runs.

This year Ashby has a 2.91 ERA and 1.353 WHIP in 10 appearances (four starts) and 39 strikeouts in 34 innings. He also has 20 walks, so maybe the Cubs can take advantage of that.

Please visit our SB Nation Brewers site Brew Crew Ball. If you do go there to interact with Brewers fans, please be respectful, abide by their individual site rules and serve as a good representation of Cub fans in general and BCB in particular.

The 2022 Game Thread procedure will be like last years, similar to what we’ve used for Spring Training.

You’ll find the game preview posted separately on the front page two hours before game time (90 minutes for some early day games following night games).

At the same time, a StoryStream containing the preview will also post on the front page, titled “Cubs vs. (Team) (Day of week/date) game threads.” It will contain every post related to that particular game, including the First Pitch Thread and the overflow thread, as well as the recap when it’s published. The recap will also live on the front page as a separate post.

You will also be able to find the preview, First Pitch Thread and the overflow thread in the box marked “Chicago Cubs Game Threads” at the bottom of the front page (you can also find them in this section link). The StoryStream for each game can also be found in that section.

The First Pitch thread will post at five minutes before game time, then an overflow thread at 90 minutes after the scheduled game time.

Discuss amongst yourselves.
