The Cubs got more solid starting pitching from Eddie Butler and the offense hit three home runs in a 5-1 win against San Francisco.
Chicago took the final three games in the four-game set and it was Butler who led the way, going the first five innings and giving up just one run. Mike Montgomery was so good that Joe Maddon let him go the rest of the way from there, getting the last 12 outs for his only save this season.
Jake Arrieta is a decided underdog for the first time in a long time tonight when he takes on Alex Wood on the road. Arrieta threw six shutout innings against Milwaukee in his last start, which took his ERA under 5.00.
Still, he’s giving up more than a hit per inning for a .281 opponent’s batting average. This will be his first start against the Dodgers this season.
Los Angeles Dodgers
Some people were surprised to see that projections called for the Dodgers to win more games than the Cubs this season but that’s what happened so far.
Alex Wood has been a big part of that success. He’s 5-0 with a 1.88 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP. Opponent are hitting .194 against him.
Two of his nine apperances were multiple inning relief spots but of the nine, six have been scoreless. Wood has gone over 18 innings in his last three starts combined without allowing a run and he’s striking out four batters for every walk he issues.

Free Chicago Cubs vs. Los Angeles Dodgers MLB Prediction: Cubs don’t go quietly against Wood.
I don’t think Wood’s shutout streak continues in this one, though he’ll make it tough on the Cubs. Arrieta should surrender some too so I like this one going over.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Over 7.5 (-110)
If you can get 3.5 in the first five innings, go there. The Dodger bullpen is an impediment to this over but I don’t love a 4.0 in the first give.
