Chicago holds the NL’s worst home record (7-15) but edged Arizona 5-4 on May 22 to end a four-game home turf slide.

Milwaukee, which will start newcomer Ethan Small, is coming off its best offensive performance in 2 1/2 weeks by posting an 8-0 victory at St. Louis on Sunday after driving in a total of nine points in the first three games of the series. The team did so without much help from the top four hitters on the roster, who combined to go 1 for 19. Each of the final five hitters recorded at least two hits while three of them homered and two drove in three runs each.
Lorenzo Cain had his best effort of the season, going 3 for 4 with a blast and three RBIs.

Omar Narvaez also recorded three hits in the shutout victory, falling to a cycle homer, and is 7-for-11 in his last three games.
