#Cubs and Montgomery face Brewers
Mike Montgomery will start Wednesday night in the Cubs’ series finale against the Brewers. Anthony Rizzo was supposed to get the day off but manager Joe Maddon decided the first baseman looked pretty good on Tuesday when he hit two home runs. Rizzo is the 14th Cub in franchise history with at least 12 multi-homer efforts.
With a win on Wednesday, the Cubs will be MLB’s first team to get to 90 wins. The last time the Cubs won 90 games in consecutive seasons was 1929-1930.
Here’s the lineup:
