It’s a National League Central showdown on Monday afternoon at Wrigley Field. The Pittsburgh Pirates make the trip to Chicago to take on the Cubs.
This will be the first game played between the two teams this year.
The Pittsburgh Pirates have taken advantage of a pretty easy schedule to have some success and come into this game with a 6-2 record.
For the most part the pitching has been good this year, and that has led to a lot of success so far this year.
This series will be a real test though as the Cubs are the team to probably catch in the division so a couple early wins over the Cubs would be huge.
On the other side of this matchup is the Chicago Cubs who would have liked to have a better start to the season, but there is nothing to worry about too much so far.
For the Cubs they have been striking out too many times and that has led to a lot of struggles.
If the Cubs want to win this game the offense needs to be the team to get out to the fast start. Tyler Chatwood needs to slow down the Pirates offense and that should lead to some success.
