    Cleveland has had a lot of struggles on the year and are definitely disappointing in how they have played so far. The Cubs, though, are playing good on the year and look like an early favorite to win the NL Central. Look for the Cubs to continue to play well enough in the game hitting and with Lester on the mound to shut down the Indians to win this game. Final Score Prediction, Chicago Cubs win 5-2.
