    Cubs overrated as always. Give me the Under here

  • I like this spot for the Pirates to steal a game. The Cubs are coming off of a huge let down after getting walked off on last night. The worst part about it was that they were up 5-1 in the 9th and lost by 2. Their bullpen is atrocious and Kimbrel is still out. Hendricks isnt as good on the road and I think the Pirates are prime candidates to knock them off here.

    My Pick: Pittsburgh +130 70%

  • Simply put, the Pirates continue to be one of the worst teams in the league since the All-Star Break and I do not trust Musgrove any further than I can throw him. The Cubs have been underwhelming on the road this season, but Kyle Hendricks is still a much better pitcher than Musgrove and -140 is a reasonable price on the much better Cubs with the much better pitcher. Lay the juice.

    My Pick: Chicago -141 60%

    Bucs Dugout: Pirates Take Advantage of Cubs Bullpen, Walk it Off 3-2

    MLB

    The Pittsburgh Pirates battled back after a rough eighth inning to beat the Chicago Cubs in the bottom of the ninth by a score of 3-2. It was an impressive pitcher's duel in PNC Park, but the Battlin' Buccos pulled it out in the end, winning their third game out of the last four.

    The scoring was scarce all game long, but especially so in the first third of the game. Pirates righty Joe Musgrove faced the minimum through three innings, striking out four Cubs in an impressive showing. Meanwhile, Kyle Hendricks matched him, allowing just one hit in that same span.

    Cubs Insider: Chicago Cubs Score and Recap (7/14/19): Cubs 8, Pirates 3 - Cubs Plaster Pirates to Earn Sweep

    The Cubs had a chance to earn their first sweep since the start of June after taking the first two games of their set with the Pirates. Despite falling into an early hole, the offense exploded and Chicago coasted to the win.

    Anthony Rizzo and Victor Caratini singled to start the 2nd inning, but their first run didn't come easy. After a Jason Heyward double play, Robel Garcia ripped a double into right to put Chicago ahead.

    The Pirates got to Jose Quintana in the top of the 3rd inning. Starter Trevor Williams singled, as did Kevin Newman, then Bryan Reynolds made it three in a row and tied the score.
