It is a battle of the top two teams in the National League when the Chicago Cubs begin a four-game series against the San Francisco Giants starting on Thursday.
Chicago is coming off a 6-1 victory over the San Diego Padres on Wednesday, their third straight victory. The Los Angeles Angels defeated San Francisco on Tuesday, 8-1.
The Cubs have won the last four meetings between these teams, including a 1-0 victory back on August 22, 2019.
Chicago has won 9 of their last 10 games including 3 straight over the NL West leading Padres. They now sit atop the NL Central Division.
Baez leads the Cubs with 14 homers and 38 RBI. Kris Bryant has 12 homers and 36 runs driven in and he is the team leader in batting average at .317.
Chicago is averaging 4.64 runs per game, 11th overall, and is allowing 3.95 runs per contest, 9th overall.
Zach Davies will get the start for Chicago. The right-hander is 2-2 with a 4.65 ERA in 11 starts. He has been outstanding over his last two starts, allowing one total run and six total hits in 10 innings pitched.
San Francisco Giants
With the talk in the National League West about the Dodgers and Padres this offseason it seemed as if everyone forgot about the San Francisco Giants. San Fran has propelled themselves atop the NL West and currently boast the best record in all of baseball.
Brandon Crawford leads San Francisco with 11 homers and 32 runs driven in. Buster Posey is the team’s leading hitter at .315 and he has 10 homers and 21 RBI.
San Francisco is 9th in runs per game at 4.76 and is 6th in runs allowed per contest at 3.64.
Anthony DeSclafani gets the start for San Francisco. The right-hander is 4-2 with a 3.56 ERA in 11 starts. He has been fairly solid of late, allowing two runs or fewer in three of his last four starts, but that other start was a disaster, giving up 10 runs in 2.2 innings back on May 23.

Free Chicago Cubs vs San Francisco Giants MLB Prediction:
The Giants are given a slight edge in this contest which I find surprising. It is true that they have the slightly better record, but Chicago enters this contest as winners of 9 of their last 10 games. They are definitely rolling.
San Francisco has played well of late, but I like the matchup of Davies against DeSclafani. I think this helps to create a lower-scoring game, which definitely favors Chicago. Chicago has won the last four meetings between the teams.
Take the Cubbies to win game 1 in the Bay.
