Chicago Cubs vs Pittsburgh Pirates (By: Mulder)
Darvish will start for the Cubbies and the Righty is 2-4 with a 5.01 ERA> 10.30 K/9. He pitched even worse than that with a 4.55 BB/9 altough that 1.86 HR/9 should be a little lower.
At home he is 0-3 with a 6.23 ERA with even a worse 4.91 BB/9 for some shaky command.
He pitched against this very Bucs team in his last outing before the All-Star Break. He allowed four runs in Pittsburgh in 6.2 innings pitched.
He faced the Pirates at home also this season: 6.75 ERA and he pitched even worse that day with a: 7.14 FIP (!).
Wind is also blowing out today.
The Bucs were on an amazing streak before the break as they scored 6.1 runs per game over their last 10 games. With All-stars Marte and Bell i like the Pirates team total here.
