It’s a National League Central showdown on Saturday night in Chicago. The Pittsburgh Pirates and the Chicago Cubs face off in game two of their three game series. These two teams have played ten times this season with each team winning five of them. In the first game of this series the Cubs won 6-1.
The Pittsburgh Pirates have had a very up and down season but the good news for them is that the National League Central is down this year, so even with a 40-47 record, if they get hot they could still find themselves a spot in the playoffs, but it’s a long shot.
On the mound for the Pirates is Ivan Nova who has pitched well this season. He comes into this game with a 8-6 record and a 3.34 ERA. In his last start he did struggle though. He went six innings against the Phillies giving up four runs.
The Chicago Cubs season has been rough and difficult for the defending champs, but they finally sit one game above .500 and they hope that they are here to stay.
A win over the Pirates in this game would give them a two game lead, and at least they would be guaranteed an above .500 record at the all star break.
On the mound for the Cubs in this one is Jake Arrieta who has really had a rough time this year. He does have an 8-6 record with a 4.33 ERA. In his last start though he was dominant going seven innings against the Reds giving up only one hit and zero runs.
