Game Preview

The Cubs are coming into this series having swept the Kansas City Royals in two of three games. The Cubs were on fire following the All-Star break, but they’ve since cooled off. In their previous 10 games, they have a.500 record, yet they are three games behind the Brewers in the division. They have a Wild Card spot and are still trying to go to the postseason.
The Cubs’ scoring pace has not slowed down. Over the weekend, we scored 13 runs, which led to two victories. The Cubs’ high scoring pace has continued throughout the season. When it comes to scoring runs, they rank fifth in the majors, while their batting average ranks tenth, their on-base percentage ranks fifth, and their slugging percentage ranks eleventh. Cody Bellinger has played a crucial role in that.
Javier Assad will start for the Cubs on the mound. Though he’s only made four starts this year, three of them have come in May alone. He has thrown 16.2 innings this month in three starts, allowing 6 runs (5 earned) on 16 hits. His earned run average is at 2.70.
Meanwhile, the Tigers, powered by young players, won three of four games last weekend. They’ve won six of their previous 10 games, too, so they’re not out of the postseason race entirely. In the AL Central, the Tigers trail the Twins by 7.5 games.


Over the weekend, the Tigers received stellar pitching. They were only able to allow ten runs in four games, and only six in their three victories. They have a team ERA of 18.02, a WHIP of 1.11, and an opponent batting average of.288 this year, all of which rank dead last. 
Today, Alex Faedo will take the mound for the team. He has an ERA of 5.16 and a record of 2-4. His season numbers aren’t fantastic, but his last three starts have been really good. Faedo has pitched 15.2 innings while allowing only 3 runs. In his last three outings, he has an earned run average of just 1.72. In addition, in two of his last three starts, he allowed only one hit.
