Cubs vs. Pirates MLB Pick – August 17th

The Chicago Cubs keep their road trip in Pittsburgh against the Pirates this weekend. It has been well-documented how abysmal they have been on the street in 2019 which has been the recurring motif about them in Philadelphia from the Phillies. The Cubs were trapped in a three-game series, finishing with a walk-off grand slam by Bryce Harper on Thursday night.
Pedro Strop acquired his team into trouble again, as he allowed 2 earned runs with no outs and Derek Holland followed his guide to finish the game off with an at-bat against Harper. For the issues he’s had striking out in the plate, Harper’s WPA paths only Christian Yelich of their Brewers. His slam propelled that amount greater.
For the Cubs, their offense had a hangover contrary to the Pirates last night, even since they made nothing from Joe Musgrove until getting to him in the 8th inning by placing a runner on 3rd with 1 out. The performance with Kyle Hendricks has been a welcome sign, as had been the effort of Yu Darvish on Thursday night. It is a difficult bullet to take after you get production from Darvish and Hendricks then have nothing in return, but credit to Hendricks for keeping the Cubs from the match a night ago.
He also gets the match ball for storing them in the game to give Tony Kemp an opportunity for some go-ahead triple. Expecting the Cubs’ bullpen to close the game out in the 9th was a little too much to ask, however. Jon Lester will Find the call to your Cubs on Saturday in PNC Park.
Lester was desperate for a bounce back operation in his final outing, and he was not perfect, but was much better than he had been formerly pitching. The optimism in his step appeared to be backagain. Conversely, the Pirates will be countered to by the continuous Steven Brault. The Pirates will likely be hunting only their fourth win since August 3rd, since they’ve gone 3-9 within their past 12 outings. Among those wins came last night on a walk.

Betting odds supplied by
Steven Brault has ever had a standout career within his four-year career, but he’s at least been consistently average. Brault has a career ERA of 4.57 and he is hovered around that mark pretty well his whole career in the major leagues. He is on pace for a career-high with an ERA of 4.33 going into Saturday. In his previous three trips, Brault posted a 4.50 ERA in 14 innings pitched. He hasn’t appeared overly large or too low during his profession.
Consistency like that can earn a pitcher a lot of cash as a centre of the rotation option. He’s coming off what could have been a much better performance against the Cardinals. Brault permitted 4 earned runs in 4.2 innings of work, using surrendered 5 hits and 3 walks also.
The Cubs have destroyed Brault in his career. They are hitting .343 with a .452 OBP in 102 at-bats against Brault. The Cubs also have scored 24 runs on Brault in that span. If they are effective against Brault at the plate , they might not need to think about the bullpen blowing an outcome.
Lester has allowed 23 runs into the Pirates, but with far more plate appearances than the Cubs have experienced against Brault. The Bucs are hitting .255 against Lester at 231 at-bats. They’re hitting just .242 against lefties over the season instead of .269 versus right-handed pitching.
The Cubs enter Saturday to some four-game losing streak with declines in six of the past seven games, all which have come on the road. How much more pathetic can it make to the Cubs? I believe that they find it in themselves to avoid more embarrassment and prevent collapsing on Saturday behind Lester. The Cubs probably return on course for its moment at Pittsburgh in this .
