Cubs vs. Pirates MLB Pick – August 18th


The bullpen got the work completed to secure a victory, although it was terrifying at the 9th and 8th inning for the Chicago Cubs yesterday afternoon. The Cubs managed to dismiss what seemed like a lead, the night before. But there was an identical fatent going to occur again to the Cubs. Tyler Chatwood and Rowan Wick combined to pitch three innings, allowing no runs and no hits. The only mistake was Tyler Chatwood devoting a stroll.
Chatwood has developed in the best reliever that the Cubs have in their bullpen. Joe Maddon only hasnt been utilizing him often turning into his relievers instead of Chatwood, that has mostly been employed as a rookie in his career. One of the difficulties with turning to Chatwood is the quantity of work that he gets from the bullpen.
Hes normally eclipsing 3 innings about the bump, so that chooses him out of this equation to the day, After items are rolling. Maddon has been careful to preserve his arm down the stretch for the most significant time of their season. But after blowing off what should have been a win on Friday night, the Cubs needed to go to Chatwood to find some of their mojo back.
Jon Lester ought to find some recognition in this spot as well. Lester was moving through conflicts, but appears to be back on the ideal track. If they need to be playing in October, the Cubs are going to require him down the stretch. Lester was eloquent in 6 innings, having allowed just 4 hits and no runs.

This evening, mitch Keller will be making just his fifth big league start and it comes in primetime on Sunday Night Baseball. The rookie has become some experience upward at the big leagues. It has been a choppy beginning to his profession, using a couple outings that are horrible plus a few that went fairly well. His very best effort came in his latest outing, since he had been sharp with only 1 earned run enabled in five innings against the Angels.
In his outing that was favorable, Keller surrendered 4 hits and two earned runs into the Tigers at home. The Tigers have one of the worst offenses in baseball, so that may have just been a result of playing a team that is poor. Keller was abysmal from the Braves and Reds in his other two outings, allowing 12 earned runs in 7 innings of work.
He managed to bring down his numbers from the Tigers and the Angels, however, the damage was done. Keller heads into Sunday night with an ERA of both 7.94 along with 2.00 WHIP. In case tonight proves to be a success nighttime in the office, he would get a massive rush of confidence. I am not sure he gets from the one having a stat line that is leading , however. The Cubs holding them down like that again is going to be tough to the Pirates and slept afternoon.
The Pirates get a date using Quintana tonight in the dish. Hes been pitching extremely well lately. Phillies and the Athletics scored only two runs throughout 13 innings of play. Quintana goes to this one with an amazing 1.89 ERA and 0.79 WHIP in his previous three outings.
Its also been five trips since hes allowed over 3 runs in a start and less runs in seven. The Pirates are hitting on just .202 with 3 home runs strike from Quintana from 124 showings in the plate. The Cubs have had their battles on the street in 2019, but look for them to wrap up this road trip with a win on Sunday Night Baseball.
