Chicago has not yet announced who will be taking the mound for them in this outing. In the past week their pitching staff owns a solid 3.19 ERA to go with a slash line of .246/.346/.386 while they have struck out 44 batters compared to giving up 33 walks.
Their pitching staff has also been solid on the road where they own a 2.84 ERA to go with a slash line of .212/.305/.332. Even in the month of June they have been owning it where they own a 2.83 ERA and a solid slash line of .207/.304/.324
Chicago has been playing winning baseball in the past week as they have won four of their seven contests. During that span their lineup is slashing .268/.364/.427 to go with 22 extra-base hits and 30 RBI.
DeSclafani was solid for the most part in his last outing as he collected his second win of the season against the Pittsburgh Pirates. He went 5.2 innings giving up just three hits and two earned runs ( Two solo home runs) while he struck out four and walked one.
In three starts, DeSclafani owns a solid strikeout (8.62 K/9) to walk (2.30 BB/9) rate, but he has already struggled with the long ball giving up three home runs in three starts. Of course it is a small sample size, and he’ll be looking to bring his 4.60 ERA closer to his 3.28 ERA from two years ago.
Cincinnati has finally been playing winning baseball in the last week where they have won four of their six contests. During that span their lineup has done well hitting the ball where they own a slash line of .277/.362/.466 to go with 19 extra-base hits and 31 RBI.

DeSclafani has the stuff to be a solid impact pitcher in this league and I expect him to start getting into form now that he has a couple of starts under his belt. Whoever Chicago throws out there, I expect this hot Cincinnati lineup to get their fair share of runs in their hitter-friendly ball park.
