The Pirates seem to be enjoying their spoiler status, having taken two from the Cubs to start the series. As this is being written on Wednesday they need just one more win to guarantee a .500 season, which given the preseason expectations is pretty good for this group.
Somewhat lost in their season is how good Trevor Williams has been. He is 7th in ERA and even though he does not dominate he has been very effective including back to back shutout starts of 6 IP each coming into this one. He has given up just 2 ER in 13 innings against the Cubs this season.
As this is being written the Cubs and Brewers both have 91 wins. Odds are both make the playoffs but that fact means that the final few games are going to make all the difference. The Cubs have been good at home but the offense has dried up the first couple of games of the series – 1 run combined.
Jon Lester has been the Cubs most consistent pitcher all season long but his splits are definitely better on the road than at home. I wouldn’t say this is a must win but he is a big game pitcher who is not going to be phased by the moment that’s for sure. It is all hands on deck until they clinch for the bullpen.
