Arizona tries to become one of the very few teams to figure out how to beat the Cubs at home.
The two will begin a weekend 3 game set inside Wrigley Field Friday afternoon.
The Diamondbacks spent a lot of money this past offseason on pitching and right now, there are a lot of regrets to deal with.
Arizona sits 8 games under the .500 mark and have allowed 5.07 runs per game on the season.
With their pitching struggles, they have dug themselves quite the gap in the NL West. Arizona currently resides in 4th place, 10.0 games back of front running San Francisco.
They’ll send out Archie Bradley here, who has an inflated ERA that sits over 6 despite being 2-0 on the season.
Bradley does come in off a solid start as he struck out 9 while allowing 3 runs in 7.1 innings of work.
Bradley has to work on keep his pitches down as he has shown many times that his command just isn’t his strong suit.
The Cubs and Wrigley Field have gone so well together.
Chicago improved to 6-1 on their current 10 game homestand and are 20-7 at home overall this season.
The starting pitching has been on point. Through the 7 games, the Cubs starts have gone 6-0 with a 1.12 stellar ERA.
Trying to continue the trend, the Cubs go with John Lackey here.
Lackey sits with a 5-2 record and an ERA of 3.16. In the month of May, Lackey went 2-1 with an ERA 2.09.
In all 6 of those outings, Lackey turned in quality starts.
