CHC Cruising To Best Start In Team History

The Chicago Cubs have been just as good as advertised in the early goings this MLB season, as the Cubbies are 8-1, which ties the franchises best start through nine games. The Cubs are also a perfect 3-0 at Wrigley Field while outscoring the Cincinnati Reds 23-6 in their first series at home this year. The Chicago Cubs will host the middling Colorado Rockies Friday afternoon.

Shark Bites
  • The OVER is 5-2 in the Rockies’ past seven road games.
  • The Cubs are 20-7 in their 27 games hosting the Rockies.
  • Carlos Gonzalez has a career .375 batting average against Kyle Hendricks.

The Cubs, who sit inside the top 10 in pretty much every significant statistical category, will send Kyle Hendricks to the mound. Hendricks pitched 6.2 innings while allowing two earned runs in his first outing of the season against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Chad Bettis will be making his third start of the season for the Rockies Friday. Bettis has posted a 4.38 ERA through his first two starts, but was noticeably better in his last outing after going seven innings and giving up just one earned run against the San Diego Padres.
