Chicago Cubs vs Arizona by Sors

Chicago-Cubs
VS
Arizona
Cubs left-hander Jose Quintana (6-9 with a 4.16 ERA) takes the mound against the Diamondbacks in a rubber match of a three-game series at Wrigley Field.After posting a 4.48 ERA in eighteen starts for the White Sox, the 28-year-old Colombian went 2-1 with a 2.37 ERA in three starts for his new team.In the last of them, on July 28, Quintana yielded 4 hits and 2 runs while striking out six over six innings of a 1-2 loss in Milwaukee.However, the left-hander doesn't have many good memories from his previous two starts against the Diamondbacks, going 0-2 with a 9.58 ERA.He was hammered for 8 runs in 4 1/3 innings in the last of them, a 6-8 loss at Chase Field on May 24, while with the White Sox.The Arizona Diamondbacks, who have 1/2-game advantage over Colorado in the race for the top wild-card spot, will send their ace Zack Greinke (13-4 with a 2.84 ERA) to the mound for Thursday's series finale.The veteran right-hander went 4-0 with a 2.12 ERA in five starts in July, allowing 4 hits and 1 run while striking out nine over seven innings in the last of them, a 7-1 win in St. Louis last Saturday.He's lasted at least seven innings in four of those five outings.In addition to that, the 33-year-old has fared well against the Cubs.Greinke is 2-1 with a 1.76 ERA in five career starts, holding the opposing batters to a .215 average.The right-hander has a 4-3 record and a 3.45 ERA in nine road contests this season.I think that the Arizona Diamondbacks will manage to win that game.pin
