Cubs Crushing Lefties This Season

The Chicago Cubs have been taking it to southpaw pitchers this season. The Cubbies are slashing a collective .260/.363/.459 against lefties and have won each of their past nine games facing a left-handed starter. Will the Cubs continue this trend when they take on the Milwaukee Brewers and starting pitcher Brent Suter on Friday?

Shark Bites
  • Brent Suter has allowed 7 hits and 4 runs in 1.1 innings of relief work against the Cubs this season.
  • The total has gone OVER in the last 8 games between the Cubs and Brewers.
  • The Brewers are 6-2 SU in their last 8 games when opening a series.

Suter makes his fifth straight start for the Brew Crew since joining the rotation in place of an injured Chase Anderson. Suter has been a revelation during his most recent run as a starter with a 1.96 ERA in four outings while throwing 70 percent of his pitches for strikes.

Jose Quintana has looked as good as advertised since the Cubs acquired him roughly two weeks ago. In two starts for the Cubbies, Quintana has allowed just three runs while striking out 19 batters compared to just two walks. The lefty has been a key cog to the Cubs rotation turnaround since the all-star break, as Chicago starters have a stellar 2.50 ERA in the past 12 games.
