Will the Cubs Continue Hot Streak vs. Giants?

Even though the Chicago Cubs haven’t brought a lot to the table this season, they’ve been playing some good baseball of late, which has the potential to continue into the weekend. Timely hitting has been a big part of the Cubs’ success after the All-Star break, and it’s not like Alex Cobb will light fear into their hitters’ eyes on Friday evening. 

Cubs Projected Lineup:

CF Rafael Ortega

DH Willson Contreras

RF Seiya Suzuki

LF Ian Happ

SS Nico Hoerner

3B Patrick Wisdom

C Yan Gomes

1B Alfonso Rivas

2B Christopher Morel

Starting Pitcher: Marcus Stroman

Will the Giants Bust out of their Slump?

San Francisco was a team to watch entering this season because it was hard to see them living up to the expectations they brought to the table after winning the NL West last season. For the most part, a lot of this team has regressed to the norm this season, leaving them under the .500 mark, which should leave you hesitant in backing their side of the equation here. 

Giants Projected Lineup:

3B Tommy La Stella

LF Joc Pederson

2B Wilmer Flores

1B Brandon Belt

RF Luis Gonzalez

SS Thairo Estrada

CF Mike Yastrzemski
