This NL matchup includes two teams that could end up being a big playoff series in the future.
The Chicago Cubs are clearly the best team in baseball right now.
The San Francisco Giants are not far behind them.
The Chicago Cubs lineup is a big surprise to me right now. With Schwarber hurt for awhile and Kris Bryant not playing to potential, this lineup is very good.
Ben Zobrist was acquired in the offseason and is leading the team in hitting. He is hitting .328 on the year with 5 dingers and 28 runs batted in. Right behind him is Dexter Fowler.
Fowler is hitting .319 on the year with 14 2 baggers and 19 runs batter in. Anthony Rizzo is bringing all the power this year, he is hitting .259 on the year with 11 bombs and 34 RBIs.
The Cubs send out their ace on Friday, Jake Arrieta tones the hill against the Giants. Arrieta is currently 7-0 on the year with a 1.59 E.R.A and 55 strikeouts.
He was last in action against Pittsburgh in a win. Jake threw 8 innings of work and gave up 2 earned runs and only gave up 3 hits. He also struck out 11 strikeouts and only walked 2 batters.
San Francisco Giants
The San Francisco Giants lineup is doing well this year on paper. Brandon Belt is leading the way for them batting just above .300. at .301.
Belt also has 15 extra base hits and 22 runs batted in. Hunter Pence is leading the team in power stats with 7 home runs and 31 runs batted in. Pence is hitting .298 on the year.
Superstar Buster Posey is hitting .274 with 9 doubles and 14 RBIs.
The Giants send out the veteran Jake Peavy and he has been struggling this year.
Peavy is currently 1-4 on the year with a 7.43 E.R.A. and 36 strikeouts. He was last in action against the Arizona Diamondbacks in a no decision.
He threw in 6 innings of work, giving up only 1 earned run on 3 hits. Peavy also had 5 strikeouts and 2 walked in the game.

Free Chicago Cubs vs. San Francisco Giants MLB Prediction:
This game includes two of the NL’s best and this will be a very good series. The Cubs seem to have struggled against the Padres this week, but it seems hard to bet against Jake Arrieta.
He keeps surprising people with how well he is performing start after start. I am taking the Cubs in this one and it is all on Jake.
I can see this game being a lower scoring game because Peavy seem to bring his stuff in his last start.
