One of the hottest teams in the MLB, the Chicago Cubs have won six of the past seven games.
Even though the 2nd place Brewers are trying to gain ground, Chicago is not letting that happen.
The Cubs will be heading to Pittsburgh as they recently sweep them in Chicago a couple of series again. Can they sweep them again?
On the mound for Chicago is Kyle Hendricks who has taken control of his big opportunity. Since entering the rotation, he holds a 6-4 record with being undefeated in his last three starts.
After getting swept by the Cubs, the Pittsburgh Pirates have turned their season around quickly as they are riding a two game winning streak.
In those two games, the Pirates have only allowed one run, as the pitching is finally stepping up.
Can they continue their winning streak? If they want to, Steven Brault must have a historic day as he’s making his first major league start.
