Philly won the series opener to push their winning streak to 4 games and to get their road record over .500. This is going to be a tough series though between two good first place teams. Bryce Harper hit a couple of homers in the last series and they are really hoping to get him going. They need to lengthen the lineup and he has an ability to get hot and takeover a series.
Cole Irvin has been sharp through a couple of starts in his young career. The Phillies have won both games and he can have and advantage in that the Cubs have never seen him. He has one road start under his belt too, winning at Kansas City. Philly needs to be better in the bullpen if they want to be a contender in October. Missing David Robertson hurts.
The Cubs have a great statistical profile with a deep lineup and a veteran pitching staff that is getting results. They are able to put power up and down the lineup and most of their guys are not Joey Gallo types. They can make contact too. Wilson Contreras gets lost but he is leading the team in hitting and tied for the lead in homers. He could have a career year.
Cole Hamels has been the Cubs best starter early. He has a 4-0 record and the Cubbies are 7-2 in his starts. Also, I am wondering if this is the first time a Cole has started against a Cole. Hamels has been especially stingy at home and they will need innings from him as they are not blessed with a great bullpen right now.
