In a game from MLB Playoffs, we will see the teams of Chicago Cubs at San Francisco Giants on Monday at AT&T Park, San Francisco, California.
Chicago Cubs come to town with the thought of eliminating the Giants. Chicago took advantage of their home field advantage winning both games. Jake Arrieta will make his 32nd start for the Cubs this year. He stands at 18-8 with a 3.10 ERA. He struggled in his latest appearances, going for 2-3 but I think he will be more than motivated to give his team the W in a hostile atmosphere. Arrieta has won 4 games out of 6 against the Giants so far in his career. San Francisco will be trying to avoid elimination tonight but they were embarrassed in the first two games of the series. Their backs are against the wall and they will need Madison Bumgarner to deliver. This will be his 36th start for this year while he is 15-9 with a 2.74 ERA. Bumgarner’s performance has declined since All-Star weekend and he won only 50% of his games after that.
Bumgarner had an intense game against the Mets the last time he started. He threw 121 pitches and I don’t know what he will look like on Monday night. Arrieta was more rested and I think that will help him deliver the win. I expect this to be a low-scoring game with Chicago coming out on top.
