The Pirates are one team that is living up to the hype they had early on this year. The Pirates, though, may be thankful for the shorter season as it means fewer losses. The Pirates are coming in already well under the five hundred mark and are definitely one team that could have a lot of problems in the shorter year.

This year the Cubs are coming in looking really good on the year. The Cubs are well over the five hundred mark this season, but are definitely one team that has proven that they are playing good enough to win quite a few games on the year and should be able to continue to play great on the year.

Steven Brault is the projected starter for the Pirates. This year Brault is 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA which is really good for a Pirates pitcher. Brault has thrown a total of 2 innings with a hit allowed, 2 walks, and a strikeout.

Jon Lester is the starting pitcher the Cubs are putting on the mound. Lester is 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA. He has ended up getting a total of 5 innings pitched without a single hit allowed, but did strikeout a batter and walked only 1 batter.

    This game will be one that is more along the lines of the Cubs to lose. The Cubs are facing a Pirates team that has not really shown to be that strong, but also a Pirates team that has not played that great when it comes to pitching. In fact, Brault only looks good because he has not thrown a lot on the year and that really tips the scales towards the Cubs who have a great offensive showing in the game. Final Score Prediction, Chicago Cubs win 8-2.
