KEY GAME INFORMATION
CHICAGO CUBS: 017 92-70, first place, lost to Dodgers in NLCS
MANAGER Joe Maddon (fourth season)
ADDITIONS: RHP Yu Darvish, RHP Brandon Morrow, RHP Tyler Chatwood, RHP Steve Cishek, LHP Drew Smyly, C Chris Gimenez
SUBTRACTIONS: RHP Wade Davis, C Alex Avila, C Rene Rivera, RHP Jake Arrieta, RHP John Lackey
OUTLOOK: World Series or bust. The acquisition of Darvish, who finalized a $126 million, six-year contract in February, gives Chicago a strong rotation, and the lineup is young, deep and dangerous. A franchise-record six players (Rizzo, Schwarber, Bryant, Happ, Baez and Contreras) belted at least 20 home runs last year, including a major league-record five in an age 25 or younger season. Chicago also scored more than 800 runs in consecutive seasons for the first time since the team surpassed that mark for three consecutive years from 1929-1931. The Cubs have made it to the NL Championship Series for three consecutive seasons, winning it all in 2016 to end a 108-year drought, and there's no reason to think they won't be in the mix for another title this year.
ATLANTA: 2017 72-90, third place
MANAGER Brian Snitker (third season)
ADDITIONS: RHP Brandon McCarthy, RHP Anibal Sanchez, LHP Scott Kazmir, INF Charlie Culberson, OF Preston Tucker, OF Ronald Acuna, 3B Austin Riley, OF Jeff Decker, 2B Christian Colon, RHP Shane Carle
SUBTRACTIONS: OF Matt Kemp, RHP R.A. Dickey, 3B Adonis Garcia, 1B Matt Adams, INF Jace Peterson, RHP Jason Motte
OUTLOOK: Teheran, Foltynewicz and Newcomb have provided reasons this spring to believe they can improve their 2017 numbers. For a change, the spring spotlight was on a position player; Acuna was hitting .432 with 4 home runs, 11 RBI and 4 steals when he was sent to minor league camp. The move involving the 20-year-old top prospect was expected. It was made to maintain an extra full season of contractual control down the road, but Acuna likely will be recalled in April and immediately start in left field. He could provide a needed power bat to help Freeman in the middle of the lineup. The Braves likely are still at least a year away from contending in the NL East, but improved starting pitching could push them closer to .500 this year.
PREVIEW
Braves' McCarthy hopes for better result vs. Cubs
 

ATLANTA -- Brandon McCarthy has been able to make all his starts in his first season with the Atlanta Braves and that's definitely been a positive for the injury-plagued veteran right-hander and his new team.

After winning his first four decisions, though, McCarthy has seen his ERA jump from 3.09 to 5.58 following two straight losses and the 34-year-old needs to get back on track Wednesday night against the Chicago Cubs.

The Cubs (22-17) scored twice in the top of the ninth on doubles by Albert Almora and Addison Russell for a 3-2 victory over the Braves (25-16) in the opener of the three-game series at SunTrust Park on Tuesday after dropping a makeup game 6-5 in Chicago on Monday.

McCarthy (4-2) will be opposed by right-hander Tyler Chatwood, who has won his last three decisions after a 0-3 start with the Cubs as a free-agent addition despite continuing control issues.

Chatwood (3-3, 3.35 ERA) has walked 32 in 37 2/3 innings, but has mitigated the wildness to some extent with 38 strikeouts.

McCarthy neither normally strikes out nor walks many. It's been too many hits that has been his downfall of late.

McCarthy gave up 12 hits and a career-worst eight runs over 3 1/3 innings in a home loss to the San Francisco Giants on May 5, then 11 hits and six runs over five innings in a road defeat to the Miami Marlins on Friday.

"As a movement pitcher, you're relying on that to get some weak contact," McCarthy said. "The last two starts, a lot of it is falling in and a lot of it is finding holes. When they do hit a ball hard, it's doing some damage. I've got to find a way to mitigate all of this.

"There's some mystery in there I've got to solve that brings it back to a good place. I didn't think the quality of pitches would lead to those kind of results. I'm pretty confused right now."

Braves manager Brian Snitker is sticking with McCarthy.

"You go through some stretches where things just aren't clicking," Snitker said. "You feel good and nothing is wrong. But it's just not happening for you. You've just got to keep grinding and fighting through it."

McCarthy made two starts against the Cubs last season for the Los Angeles Dodgers and won them both, giving up only six hits over 12 scoreless innings.

Lifetime, McCarthy is 2-1 with a 1.11 ERA in five games (four starts) against the Cubs.

Chatwood, who had a 4.69 ERA and was 8-15 with the Colorado Rockies last season, has walked at least five batters in five of his seven starts for the Cubs. However, he is 3-0 with a 2.45 ERA in his last four starts.

"I know what it is," the 27-year-old Chatwood said of his control issues. "I feel it's an easy correction, but I'm fighting it now. It's just a matter of having it click. I know what it is. I'm kind of fighting it back and forth."

"I think it's delivery-related," Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. "I think he needs to find that rhythm. It's a complicated delivery. If you're not all together, you have a hard time finding your release point."

Chatwood, who signed a three-year deal worth $38 million to join the Cubs, has faced the Braves seven times (five starts) and is 2-2 with a 5.60 ERA.

Control has been an issue there as well, with Chatwood recording 20 walks in 27 1/3 innings.

Freddie Freeman is 7-for-13 for the Braves against Chatwood and has walked twice.

The only Cub with more than seven at-bats against McCarthy is Ben Zobrist. He is 6-for-24 with a home run.
