The Cubs are coming off a big win against the White Sox yesterday at Wrigley Field, 7-2. John Lackey got the start and lasted six innings. If it wasn’t for Carl Edwards Jr, we might be discussing a Cubs loss instead of a win. Lackey left runners on second and third with no outs when Edwards cleaned up his mess. The Cubs have some thinking to do about Lackey. All of his starts have been suspect this season.
Jake Arrieta (9-7, 4.11 ERA) has turned his season around (unlike Lackey) to get his record above .500. In his last four starts, Arrieta has pitched 25.1 innings, allowing 16 hits, eight runs (six earned), three home runs, seven walks and 18 strikeouts.
He is 2-1 with a 2.13 ERA during those starts.
Chicago White Sox
The White Sox left a lot of opportunities to win yesterday’s game on the table. Lackey was worn out after the first inning, but the White Sox could not generate more runs.
The White Sox had seven hits and left a lot of runners on base for the game.
The White Sox will turn to James Shields (2-2, 5.79 ERA). Shields use to be called big game James, in his days with the Royals. Now he is struggling to stay in the rotation. If he were on almost any other team in the league, he would be a bullpen guy. His stats are horrible over his last three outings.
Shields has pitched 15 innings, allowing 23 hits, 16 runs (all earned), five home runs, eight walks and eight strikeouts. His record is 0-1 with a 9.60 ERA in those three starts.

Free Chicago Cubs vs. Chicago White Sox MLB Prediction:
With the way Shield has performed this season, I have no doubt the Cubs will generate enough hits and runs to get the cross town win. Take the Cubs.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER the Number
I see why the run total is 10.5 combined runs. Arrieta is suspect to giving up runs on the road (4.24 road ERA), and as mentioned earlier, Shields should not be a starter in this league anymore. The game will combine for over 10.5 runs. Take the over.
