lanta."Honestly Jose Altuve Jersey , I don’t have anything more to say about this game, not after a completely exhausting weekend for the Cubs in Texas. Basically, they scored enough runs — 28 — to sweep the series. But the pitching staff has been, uh, not very good. That’s going to have to change. Good offensive showing, though. Let’s hope they keep that up.Here are today’s particulars.Cubs lineup:Braves lineup:Kyle Hendricks, RHP vs. Sean Newcomb, LHPJayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY SportsReinhold Matay-USA TODAY SportsKyle Hendricks, who many think should rank as Opening Day starter for the Cubs, instead throws the fourth game of the season.Really, it doesn’t matter, as long as the pitchers do the job.Kyle has not faced the Braves since August 31, 2017, so they looked a lot different then than now. As such http://www.astrosfanproshop.com/authentic-justin-verlander-jersey , he’s never pitched in SunTrust Park and in fact, has only one career start in Atlanta (July 17, 2015). The only Braves hitter who’s seen him more than a handful of times is Nick Markakis (5-for-11).Sean Newcomb has made three career starts against the Cubs and they’ve hit him pretty well in all three, although to be fair, one of those starts was that ridiculously cold and wet day last April 14 at Wrigley Field.Newcomb had a good year in 2018, his first full big-league season, producing a 3.90 ERA, 1.329 WHIP and 1.7 bWAR. The Braves are looking for bigger things from him in 2019.Albert Almora Jr., Javier Baez and Willson Contreras have all homered off Newcomb.Today’s game is on NBC Sports Chicago Plus.
