Chicago and San Francisco continue their weekend set as both teams look to hold their spots atop their respective divisions.
Chicago leads the NL Central by 6.5 games while the Giants hold a 3.5 game lead in the NL West.
Chicago start this season off with an absolute blazing record, but they have cooled off for the first time really all year.
Chicago enters this series with the Giants losing 2 of 3 in Milwaukee and will now take on a much more talented offense and pitching staff. Here on Saturday in Game 2, the Cubs will try to continue their dominant hitting and pitching on the road.
The Cubs have averaged 6.16 runs per game while conceding just 2.95 runs against.
Chicago will send out one of their talented pitchers here as Jon Lester looks to improve on his 4-2 record. Lester has been stellar this year, as his ERA sits at just 1.88 on the season. He was the tough luck loser last time out as he allowed just 2 runs to the Pirates, but his offense couldn’t help him out in a 2-1 loss.
San Francisco Giants
San Francisco comes into this one hot.
They swept their recent road trip and have won 8 in a row overall heading into this series with the Cubs. At home, it’s been an interesting start for the Giants. They are just 11-10 SU and are scoring just as much as they’re giving up. San Francisco has averaged 4.52 runs per game, but their pitching is right there with 4.43 runs against. They’ll be looking for stability here as they haven’t seemed to have much consistency when playing at home.
Things could be tough on that note as they send out Matt Cain here. Cain is on thin ice as he is 0-5 on the season with an ERA of 5.87. Although he earned a no decision last time out, it was his best start in a while last time out against Arizona. Cain finished by allowing 1 run on 7 hits in 7.0 innings.
