Red-hot Cubs aim to keep Brewers in a slump

The Chicago Cubs will look to build upon the best record in the major leagues when they take on the visiting Milwaukee Brewers on Friday night in the second installment of a four-game series.

Behind first-year manager David Ross, the Cubs have raced to a 13-3 start for the first time since 1907. They have won seven games in a row at home and outscored opponents 83-63 on the season.

For the team's core group of players, which captured a World Series title in 2016, the success has felt rejuvenating.
