Analysis


Jon Lester is on the mound for the first place Chicago Cubs. The Cubs are looking to start a little streak in the second half after a tough weekend in St. Louis. Look for Lester and the Cubs to cool down the Pirates, and keep their charge in the NL Central at bay.

Analysis

Jameson Taillon has allowed four earned runs total in his past three starts, and he's allowed three or fewer runs in 11 straight starts. Chicago's Jon Lester got back on track last time out, but he's a bit more prone to giving up homers on the road. Back the Pirates, 15-4 in their last 19, to stay hot.
