The defending World Series champions have been struggling to get going this year, both in their batting lineup and on the mound.
Proven-ace Jake Arrieta will take the mound. The righty has been struggling all year, with a mediocre 4.68 ERA. Conventional wisdom says that this needs to turn around.
Though they have not been as disappointing as the Cubs, Pittsburgh has been another disappointing NL Central team.
Despite the team’s struggles, Ivan Nova has been as strong starter for the Pirates this year. He has a 6-4 record, and a 2.83 this season. He looks to continue his strong year against a capable lineup.

Free Chicago Cubs vs. Pittsburgh Pirates MLB Prediction:
The Cubs have been inexplicably bad on the road this season, particularly recently—the club 3-13 in their last 16 games as visitors.
Arrieta has also been disappointing. We keep waiting for this team to finally get in a groove, but it has not come yet.
My gut feeling is that these next few weeks are when we will see the defending World Series champions turn things around, and this game will be an illustration of that.
