The Cubs had a horrific weekend as they were swept in a crucial four game set against the Cardinals. As a result the Cubs are now four games behind the Brewers who hold the second wild card spot. Unless the Cubs win the rest of their games and the Brewers get cold they will miss the playoffs.
Craig Kimbrel has been lousy as of late. The closer lost two games in the series as he allowed three runs while recording a total of five outs. The $43 million contract he got looks like a terrible move at the moment.
The Cubs may end up being one of the major disappointments this season unless a miracle happens.
On the mound for the Cubs is Kyle Hendricks. Hendricks is 11-9 with a 3.37 ERA this season. The righty allowed four runs in 5.1 innings in his last outing against the Cardinals.
The Pirates will miss the postseason as they stand at 65-91. Pittsburgh has had an issue with pitching all season. The team has allowed 890 runs which ranks as the second most in the National League. Guys like Trevor Williams (5.52 ERA), Chris Archer (5.19 ERA), and Steven Brault (5.07 ERA) have struggled all year.
Pittsburgh’s lineup has a few dangerous hitters. Josh Bell leads the team with 37 homers and 116 RBIs. Bryan Reynolds (.318), Starling Marte (23 homers), and Kevin Newman (.310) have all been terrific this season.
The Pirates will go with Mitch Keller on Tuesday night. Keller has struggled with a 1-5 record and a 7.74 ERA. Keller has allowed 65 hits in just 43 innings.
