The Cubs just keeping winning and there is no sign of them slowing down anytime soon.
They come into Philli who’s been the complete opposite. They are just 2-8 in their last 10.
Cubs took game 1 of this series 6-4, as the Phillies had a late rally which was not enough.
The 6-2 Lackey takes the mound for the Cubs while Velasquez at 5-2 goes for the Phillies:
The Cubs are just doing it in every way possible right now.
They score the 2nd most runs in the majors and allow the least amount of runs.
They average 5.4 runs per game and give up just 2.9.
That makes it difficult for the opposition every night.
They have won 11 of their last 13 games and scored 68 runs during his span.
They have only allowed 34 runs during the same 13 game stretch.
Lackey has been amazing with a 2.88 era and 0.97 whip!
He’s given up just 11 runs in his last 6 outings.
He’s given up just 1 run in his last 2 outings combined over 13.2 innings.
He is running on all cylinders at the moment.
The Phillies were doing well to start this season but as of late are desperate to turn things around.
They don’t score very much which is going to be even more challenging against Lackey and the Cubs.
They are 29th in the league in run production scoring just 3.2 runs per game.
They don’t have any offensive weapons appearing anytime soon that can turn this around.
Fortunately, they’ve received pretty good pitching.
They allow just 4.1 runs per game which has kept them in ball games.
Velasquez is 5-2 and has a 3.67 era. He’s been pretty good for the Phillies but will have a tough time against the Cubs without a doubt.

Free Chicago Cubs vs. Philadelpha Phillies MLB Prediction:
This should be another win for the Cubs.
The Phillies have scored a bit more the past 4 games but I consider this span an outlier due to variance.
Against Lackey and the Cubs offense, Philly doesn’t really stand a chance and will likely get swept again.
