The Cubs went into Monday’s travel day with the second-best record in the National League, well behind the Dodgers and percentage points ahead of the Padres.
They swept the Pirates in their only series together thus far. Jon Lester won one of them with six innings of four-hit, one-run baseball.
He went through a rough patch with back-to-back poor outings before getting back on track his last time out.
He pitched around eight hits to allow just one run to score in five innings. He struck out a season-high five.
For a man who used to be a strikeout pitcher, Lester is showing his age. He has just 22 K’s in nearly 32 innings.
The Pirates have had a terrible season on the whole but they have won six of their last ten.
Chad Kuhl has been the best pitcher on the staff, too.
The former ninth-round draft pick who will turn 28 in just over a week has given up just 16 hits in 25 innings.
Like Lester, he doesn’t strike many batters out. He’s punched out only 20, compared to 11 walks.

Free Chicago Cubs vs. Pittsburgh Pirates MLB Prediction: under.
The Pirates really don’t have much in that lineup. Could Kuhl and a rested bullpen keep it close? If so, this one is headed for eight runs or fewer.
