It’s the proverbial rubber match between the Cubs and Diamondbacks as the teams have split their first two contests over the weekend at Wrigley Field.
The Diamondbacks offense was definitely clicking on Saturday as they scratched across 6 runs on 13 hits. It was a much better offensive showing than their 1-5 loss on Friday and there should be some runs available on Sunday as well.
What Arizona does have is some question marks on the mound as Robbie Ray makes his 5th start of the season, but still looking for his first win. That’s not saying the LH hasn’t pitched well for the most part though as he allowed just 3 runs total and had a 10K performance vs. Texas before the Braves scored 5 in Ray’s last start.
The Cubs had a lot of opportunities Saturday as they actually outhit Arizona 8-7, but they were ultimately unable to get anybody across the plate. The total has now gone ‘under’ in 7 of the last 9 Cubs games.
Chicago may have a hard time scoring again on Sunday considering Anthony Rizzo and Kris Bryant have gone a combined 1-20 vs. Ray in their career. The Cubs hit just .143 as a team vs. the Arizona starter in 49 AB.
Tyler Chatwood will make his first start of the season on Sunday after making 4 appearances out of the bullpen. Chatwood will be limited to about 80 pitches, which means the Chicago relievers will need to step up.

Free Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Chicago Cubs MLB Prediction:
Hard to trust Chatwood in this one as he has struggled with his command when in the starting spot. Arizona has good value for a team that has won 4 out of 5 on their recent road trip.
