Cubs Looking To Extend Winning Streak At Wrigley

There is no better home-field advantage in baseball right now than Wrigley Field. The Chicago Cubs have won eight straight games at home by a combined score of 45-24. The Cubs continue a four-game series with the San Francisco Giants Friday.

SHARK BITES
  • Kris Bryant is batting .455 during his current 14-game hitting streak.
  • The Giants have lost their past five games at Wrigley Field.
  • The UNDER is 8-3 in the Giants’ past 11 games on the road.

Jon Lester has been near untouchable since the All-Star break, as the lefty has a 2.01 ERA while holding batters to a .195 batting average in his past eight starts. Lester’s stellar pitching has led to success for the Cubs, as the club has gone 7-1 in the veteran’s last eight outings.

The Giants will send Albert Suarez to the bump for his first time since July 3. Suarez has been a solid spot starter for the Giants, as he has a 4.38 ERA across his seven starts this season.
