Cubs Have Been Sucking On The Road

No two ways about it, the Chicago Cubs have been disappointing this season. One of the biggest reasons has been their issues on the road with the Cubbies going 11-16 away from Wrigley Field including losses in each of their past eight. The Cubs kick off a three-game set at Citi Field against the New York Mets Monday.

SHARK BITES
  • Jay Bruce is hitting .300 with 8 RBIs during the month of June.
  • The Cubs are 2-9 SU in their last 11 games against the Mets.
  • The Mets are 2-6 SU in their last 8 games as favorite.

Jacob deGrom gets the start for the Mets in the hopes that he can recover after back-to-back subpar outings. In his past two starts, deGrom has pitched just 8.0 innings while surrendering 18 hits, 15 runs and four home runs. The righty is averaging a career-high 11.8 K/9 but also giving up a career-high 9.3 H/9.

Lackey, who opposes deGrom Monday, has not exactly been lighting the world on fire recently. The 14-year veteran has a 6.65 ERA and has given up six dingers across his past four starts. Lackey has been challenging batters more, which has been both good and bad, leading to the right-hander striking out batters more than ever before in his career.
