Chi Cubs (Home)
The Arizona Diamondbacks had won 4 of their last 5 before losing to the Chicago Cubs yesterday. The Cubs have been up and down since the break and will probably see a shake-up in their lineup soon as the trade deadline approaches. The D'backs will send Merrill Kelly to the mound to face the Cubs. He is 6-7 with a 4.46 ERA and 99 strikeouts this season. Against the Cubs, he is 1-1 with a 5.40 ERA. The Cubs will counter with Alec Mills on the mound. He is 4-3 this season with a 4.64 ERA and 46 strikeouts this season.
The Diamondbacks have been playing better as of late but they are 11-39 on the road this season. Merrill Kelly has posted a 5.33 ERA when pitching away from home. Alec Mills loves pitching at Wrigley, where he is 4-0 with a 2.86 ERA. Take the Cubs in this one as you get the better team and better pitcher at home.
Play on the Chicago Cubs.
