In his only start vs. the Brewers this year, August 16 at Wrigley Field, he allowed five runs (two homers) in six innings.

Brandon Woodruff has faced the Cubs twice this year and has allowed eight hits and five runs in 9⅓ innings.

That’s not as bad as Lester’s recent starts, but it suggests the Cubs might be able to hit him tonight.
