CHC (6-7): LHP Brett Anderson (1-0, 0.84)
First pitch: 7:05pmCST
This is not the opening homestand you were looking for. The Cubs continue their Wrigley skid, as the losing streak hits four.
Lackey got knocked around early (like he does) but kept the Cubs in the game, as they say. But Schwarber's lead-off physics-defying bunt single was pretty much the highlight of the whole affair.
Anderson, today's starter, beat the Dodgers on Thursday (5 IP, 3 H, 2K 4 BB), and has looked pretty good as a Cub thus far. The Brewers are 10-35 (.286) against him. Braun, who is even more annoying in a home run trot, is 2-5 with a HR.
