Chicago leads the tightly packed NL Central after winning eight-of-nine. However, those wins come at home, where the Cubs are an elite unit. Unfortunately, Chicago’s fortunes haven’t translated as well on the road where the club sports a surprisingly mediocre 18-27 mark. Chicago is just 3-6 in its last nine away from Wrigley.
Among MLB’s top-ten offensive and defensive groups, the Cubs pin their hopes today on the arm of rookie Alec Mills. Mills (0-0, 4.50 ERA) has pitched just one MLB contest this season, allowing five hits and three runs through six innings in Chicago’s recent 4-3 win over Cincinatti.
For his career, Mills has logged 11 appearances through three MLB seasons while holding batters to 19 hits and 16 runs over 27 innings pitched.
With a fledgling arm atop the mound today, Chicago will need runs from its #11-ranked (5.11 runs per game) offense.
The streaking Jason Heyward (.277 avg, 15 HR) buoys a positional group led by six players with 19-plus round trippers. Those stout bats have a prime rookie target before them this evening.
San Francisco Giants
San Francisco’s recent 8-2 tear has the club knocking on the door of NL postseason contention during a supposed rebuild year. And with all the buzz surrounding San Fran, tonight’s contest has the feel of an important National League encounter.
As of this writing, once disregarded as an easy win, the Giants trail Milwaukee by 2.5 games for the league’s final Wild Card offering.
Looking for another unpredictable playoff run, San Francisco starts RHP Shaun Anderson this evening. Anderson (3-2, 4.87 ERA) is finding his early MLB niche while helping the Giants win his last four starts. Overall, San Francisco is 8-4 when Anderson takes the mound.
And while Anderson has allowed 15 runs in his last four appearances, the Giants’ 4-0 record, flanked by heavy run support, cannot be denied.

The first meeting of 2019 between these streaking clubs promises competitive intrigue. That stated, Chicago’s road woes, and San Francisco’s resiliency, are vital factors when considering an outcome.
Further, both teams start rookie pitchers today, however, Chicago’s offense has another gear that San Fran will be hard pressed to match.
