The Cleveland Indians will travel to Wrigley Field on Tuesday night for the final game of a short two game interleague series battle versus the Chicago Cubs.
This will be Chicago’s last stand at home before hitting the road for 10 games. The Cubs lost 2 of 3 games to the NL East worst Miami Marlins. They are currently tied atop the NL Central with the Milwaukee Brewers.
Cleveland is in the midst of a 9 game road trip. They enter this series after dropping 2 of 3 games in Pittsburgh and follow up with a 4 game trip to Minnesota. The Indians are 2.5 games back of the White Sox for 1st place in the AL Central.
Bobby Bradley and Josh Naylor homered, helping the Cleveland Indians overcome the loss of MLB wins leader Aaron Civale during a 4-0 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Monday night.
Despite losing a 3 game series on the road to the Pirates, the Indians are still 7-3 in their last 10 games and remain only 2.5 games back from the Chicago White Sox.
Cleveland has been led offensively by the big bat of Jose Ramirez. The 3rd baseman leads the team in 4 major categories with 16 HR’s, 44 RBI’s, a .353 OBP, on 65 hits.
The Cubs will look to build off their 2-0 over the Marlins on Sunday with a good 2 game stand against the Indians before hitting the road. Chicago has been great at home this season and are currently sitting at a 25-12 record.
Chicago’s offense has been a bit sporadic this season as they are 7th in runs per game in the NL but are 14th in team batting average. Javier Baez and Kris Bryant split leading the team in major offensive categories. Bryant has been more efficient at the plate (.279 avg, .360 OBP, and 67 hits) while Baez has been more of the slugger (16 HR’s, 44 RBI’s).

Free Cleveland Indians vs. Chicago Cubs MLB Prediction:
The Cubs have been tough to beat all season, especially at Wrigley Field, where they are 25-13 in 38 home games. They were shutout last night but I don’t see that happening again in the series finale.
Eli Morgan takes the mound for the Indians and carries a 0-1 record in only 2 appearances this season with a 12.79 ERA. That contrasts in sharp comparison to Kyle Hendricks who has an NL 2nd most wins with 9 and a 4.13 ERA.
Take Chicago to bounce back here in front of their home crowd before hitting the road for 10 games.
