Chicago Cubs at Pittsburgh Pirates Tips 


The Pirates will host the Chicago Cubs in the third game of a series at PNC Park with Pittsburgh holding a 2-0 lead. I’m backing the Pirates to win this game and move to a 3-0 lead.

Stats


  • Chicago Cubs have lost 43 matches all season
  • Chicago Cubs have an away record of 12-18
  • The Pittsburgh Pirates have a home record of 16-19
  • The Pittsburgh Pirates have a 9-6 win/loss record against the Chicago Cubs this season.  

Pittsburgh Pirates Form


The Pirates have won both their games against the Cubs fairly comfortably with scorelines of 7-1 and 12-1.

Bligh Madris, who hit his first home run, and rookie, Roansy Contreras, helped the Pittsburgh Pirates record their second win of this series. 

Their lesser-known talents have really shown up recently along with another rookie Jack Suwinski, who hit three home runs in the last game before this series. 

Suwinski has hit 11 home runs, has 19 RBI, an average of .227 and an OBP of .304. He looks a real talent. Jared Eickhoff is expected to do most of the pitching in this one. He has an ERA of 8.69, a WHIP of 2.03 and 13 strikeouts this season. 

Chicago Cubs Form


The Cubs have been in some awful form and are probably just waiting for this series to end following 7-1 and 12-1 defeats. 

The two big losses against a team from the same division will only make it worse. The task at hand will be to not lose a match by such a big margin. 

Frank Schwindel and co will have to up their game with the bat. He has hit 8 home runs, has 33 RBI, an average of .237 and .282 OBP. This is going to be good enough against the Pirates. 

Keegan Thompson will be expected to do most of the pitching in this one. He has an ERA of 3.27, 1.18 WHIP, 48 strike outs and 20 walks this season.

Verdict
