Tampa Bay Rays
Tampa Bay has been doing a lot better than most expected this season. Sitting at two games above .500 a week before the all star break is something to build upon going into the second have.
The Rays are looking like a team who can play in the postseason this year.
Blake Snell (0-5, 5.36 ERA) will get a shot at his first win of the season against the Cubs. Snell was sent to the minors to correct some command issues, but that seems to not have worked. Snell was up to his old ways in his last outing.
He lasted 5.0 innings allowing four hits, six runs (all earned), one homer and five walks in a 6-2 road loss to Pittsburgh.
The Cubs are looking to get back to winning before the all star break. Despite all the issues on the field and off, the Cubs are still 41-41 and within striking distance of the Milwaukee Brewers for the NL Central division lead.
Veteran John Lackey (5-9, 5.24 ERA) will take the mound for the Cubs. Just based off the eye test this season, Lackey’s command has been lacking a lot this year.
He was rocked in his last start at the Nationals. He pitched 5.1 innings, allowing nine hits, eight runs (all earned) and three homers in a 8-4 loss.

Free Tampa Bay Rays vs. Chicago Cubs MLB Prediction:
Despite Lackey being on the mound for the Cubs, I still like him to pitch well enough to get a no decision team win. Take the Cubs.
