Recently acquired Cubs pitcher Cole Hamels added more fuel to the rivalry after the Brewers’ 4-3 walk-off win. He had this to say after the game. 

Hamels also cited his days in Philadelphia when Phillies fans would travel to Washington for games against the Nationals, calling that a rivalry.

Not so far with Milwaukee, according to the left-hander.

“They have great players, but in this game of baseball, you want to see the fans in the stands,” Hamels said. “To be able to have the Cubs fans travel in the masses that they do, it’s great to see.”

The win by Milwaukee drew them within four games of the Cubs for the Central Division lead in the National League. Cole has brought this ‘Rivalry’ to a whole new level.

Probably not his place to say something, being so new the Cubs organization, but if it makes baseball more exciting, I’m all for it.
