Recent history suggests good things for Braun, Brewers vs. Cubs

BY foxsports • July 30, 2015

After a rough road trip, could playing Chicago Cubs at Miller Park be just what the doctor ordered for the Milwaukee Brewers?

If recent play means anything, then yes, yes it is.

Over the last five seasons, the Brewers have dominated the Cubs at home.

BREWERS BEST HOME RECORD VS. NL TEAMS SINCE 2011

OPPONENT
RECORD WIN PCT.
Astros (as NL team) 11-4 .733
Cubs 29-11 .725
Marlins 10-4 .714
Pirates 28-14 .667

On a player level, Ryan Braun might be licking his chops as well. He has had as much production against Chicago than any player against any National League opponent in the last seven years.

75+ RBI & 75+ RUNS VS. NL TEAM SINCE 2008

PLAYER OPPONENT RBI RUNS
Matt Kemp Rockies 103 82
Matt Kemp Diamondbacks 87 84
Ryan Braun Pirates 86 92
Ryan Braun Cubs 80 75
David Wright Marlins 78 77

The Brewers might be catching the Cubs at the right time, too. From July 22-28, Chicago allowed five or more runs and 10 or more hits in seven straight games, tied for the longest streak this season.
