Managers and players alike aren't going to place a lot of emphasis on April results. Of course, carrying the momentum from a three-game series sweep sure beats the alternative for the Chicago Cubs and Milwaukee Brewers. The National League Central rivals will both be looking to extend winning streaks Friday afternoon, when the Cubs are scheduled to host the Brewers in the opener of a three-game series.
Good news and bad news for Jacob Nottingham fans. The good news is Nottingham has been reinstated from the IL. The bad news is he’s also been designated for assignment.
Omar Narvaez hit a two-run homer and and Jace Peterson added a solo shot for the Milwaukee Brewers, who beat the San Diego Padres 4-2 to complete a three-game sweep. Padres right-hander Dinelson Lamet left his season debut after two scoreless innings due to right forearm tightness. The Padres closed out a 1-5 homestand with their seventh loss in nine games overall.
