Cubs Have Been Road Warriors Since All-Star Break

Yes, the Chicago Cubs dropped Game 2 of their series with the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday but that was a rare road loss for the club. The Cubs are 12-2 SU and 10-4 against the runline in their past 14 games away from the friendly confines of Wrigley Field. The Cubs and Giants take to AT&T Park for the rubber match Wednesday afternoon.

Shark Bites
  • The Giants are 9-3 SU and ATS in their last 12 games at home against teams with winning records.
  • Willson Contreras has 5 HRs and 13 RBIs in the month of August.
  • The Cubs are 9-3 SU in their last 12 games on the road with Kyle Hendricks as the starter.

Kyle Hendricks has been dealing since coming back from the DL, as the right-hander has a 2.76 ERA with 13 strikeouts and just two walks in his last three outings. Hendricks pitched seven innings of two-run ball in his lone start against the Giants this season.

Much like Hendricks, Giants starter Madison Bumgarner has been in fine form since returning to the rotation from a lengthy stint on the DL. MadBum has a 2.78 ERA while holding opponents to a .213 batting average in his five starts since rejoining the Giants. Bumgarner last saw the Cubs in the 2016 NLDS when he surrendered three runs in five innings.
