The Chicago Cubs (86-68) will battle the Brewers at 1:10 p.m. CDT on Sunday afternoon televised on ABC 7 Chicago and TBS. The Cubs are in sole possession of first place ahead of the Brewers by 4.5 games in the National League Central division.

The North Siders are currently a sizzling 8-2 in their last ten games.

Veteran lefty Jose Quintana will start for the defending World Champions opposed by righty Chase Anderson. In 2017, Quintana has a 10-11 record with a 4.27 ERA and 192 strikeouts.

Cubs outfielder Kyle Schwarber is not in the starting lineup as the team has went with more of a defensive minded lineup with Albert Almora Jr. prowling centerfield. In addition to Schwarber, second baseman Javy Baez is getting a much needed day off.
