It’s a National League Central showdown between the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Chicago Cubs.
The Pittsburgh Pirates have won four of the six games between these two teams. Both of these teams both hope to win the division so this is a big series.
The Chicago Cubs just can’t seem to get out of this World Series hangover just yet.
Every time they have a positive game, it seems the next game they really struggle and they are back at square one. They come into this game having won four of their last six games.
One positive the Cubs have had in the last few games is Anthony Rizzo. Joe Maddon decided to put Rizzo in the lead off spot and it has paid big dividends. In each of the last two games he has hit a lead off home run on the first pitch of the game.
The Pittsburgh Pirates have had a very up and down season so far but most of the things have been down. But right now they are in a uptick having won four of the last five games. In those wins they have gotten really good pitching, something they haven’t gotten most of the year.
To win this game they need a good start from Trevor Williams, who has really struggled this year. Even though the Cubs have struggled they do still have a lot of power up and down their line up.
If he can do that they can win this game.
