Chicago likely won’t win the NL Central as they’re four games behind the Cardinals. The Cubs are currently tied with the Brewers for the second NL Wild Card. Both teams are in must-win mode as the Nationals have a 3.5 game lead on them.
The Cubs have relied on some solid pitching. The team ranks third in the NL in runs allowed. Guys like Kyle Hendricks (3.33 ERA), Jose Quintana (4.15 ERA), Yu Darvish (4.12 ERA), and Cole Hamels (3.89 ERA) have fared well.
The Cubs will have Yu Darvish on the mound for Thursday’s game. Darvish is 5-6 with a 4.12 ERA this season. Darvish has pitched great over his last two outings as he has allowed one run in 13 innings.
San Diego Padres
The San Diego Padres have had a disappointing season. An injury to rookie star Fernando Tatis Jr. has hurt San Diego. Tatis Jr. appeared to be headed for the Rookie of the Year Award. Tatis was hitting .317 with 22 homers and 53 RBIs in 84 games.
San Diego has gotten decent production from Manny Machado but not for the price they paid for. Machado is hitting .259 with 29 homers and 78 RBIs.
On the mound for San Diego is Dinelson Lamet. Lamet is 2-4 with a 3.95 ERA this season. The righty has struck out an impressive 74 hitters in 57 innings.
