San Francisco Giants
We’re only in the seventh but it looks like the Cubs will take their second straight game in the series, up 4-2 and currently threatening.
Matt Moore shut the Cubs down, all with the exception of Anthony Rizzo. The Chicago first baseman homered twice on the first three pitches he saw against Moore, the first one a get-me-over curve and the second a middle-middle fastball.
Those two solo jobs kept Kyle Hendricks in it and he’s settled down to go seven innings, the last four in shutout variety.
Jeff Samardzija will start the series finale for the Giants, who most likely need a win to salvage a series split after winning the opener.
Eddie Butler will make his third start in a Cubs’ uniform. He replaced Brett Anderson as the team’s fifth starter after Anderson was booed off the mound at Wrigley Field and hit the DL shortly after.
Butler made 28 starts over parts of three seasons with the Colorado Rockies. He was a negative WAR player in all three seasons with an ERA in the mid-6’s.
He’s got a 2.00 ERA in nine innings this season, though. The WHIP isn’t a whole lot different and Butler’s got eight strikeouts to eight walks. I’m not ready to say the Cubs have worked Arrieta magic with him yet.

Free San Francisco Giants vs. Chicago Cubs MLB Prediction: both teams score enough to push it over.
Like last night, no total posted yet but this one should be significantly higher than last night’s 7.0. Thing is, both teams should score four or five runs so I’m betting this one goes over just about any number.
