Brewers face Cubs in opener of three-game series

Apr 6, 2007 - 3:57 PM Chicago Cubs (1-2) at Milwaukee (2-1) 8:05 pm EDT

MILWAUKEE (Ticker) -- Alfonso Soriano was signed to an eight-year, $136 million contract to boost the Chicago Cubs' offense. Yet the team produced a total of seven runs in its first three games.

The Cubs face the Milwaukee Brewers in the opener of a three-game series on Friday.

Milwaukee had four homers and 13 extra-base hits en route to scoring 15 runs in winning two of three from the Los Angeles Dodgers in its season-opening series.

Dave Bush starts on Friday for the Brewers. He posted a club-high 12 wins with a 4.41 ERA in 32 starts last season. The righthander also struck out 166 batters in 210 innings.

Chicago's Rich Hill looks to improve from his rookie campaign, when he went 6-7 with a 4.17 ERA last season.

In his last start, the lefthander gave up two runs and six hits in seven innings with seven strikeouts in a no decision vs. the Brewers on September 27.
