San Francisco Giants
The San Francisco Giants have a shot at the NL Wild Card. The NL West division is out of reach for them as the Dodgers are 18.5 games ahead. Luckily for the Giants they are 3.5 games behind the Cubs for the second NL Wild Card spot despite being around .500. A 6-2 stretch over the last eight games have kept them within reach. The team is led by Kevin Pillar who is hitting .268 with 17 homers and 67 RBIs. Rookie Mike Yastremski has been their best hitter since playing with them. He is hitting .276 with 16 homers in 78 games.
Ty Beede will take the mound for the Giants on Tuesday night. Beede is 3-7 with a 5.77 ERA on the season. In his lone start against the Cubs he allowed four runs on 10 hits in 5.2 innings. Beede is allowing hitters to bat .285 this year.
The Cubs are currently tied for the NL Central lead with the Chicago Cubs. If they want to win the division and not settle for a wild card they must win games like this at home. A big pitching edge with Hamels must be taken advantage. The Cubs have excelled with their pitching as they’re third in the NL in runs allowed per contest (4.4). Leading the Cubs offense is Javier Baez and Kris Bryant. Baez is hitting .285 with 28 homers and 81 RBIs. Bryant has contributed with a .289 average and 25 homers so far.
The Cubs will have veteran Cole Hamels on the mound for them. Hamels is 6-4 with a 3.69 ERA this season. His ERA jumped more than half a run after allowing eight runs in two innings in his last outing against the Phillies.

Free San Francisco Giants vs. Chicago Cubs MLB Prediction: Cubs RL
The Chicago Cubs have a significant pitching edge with Hamels on the mound and I expect it to show. After a rough go in his last start I think he will bounce back.
