St. Louis Cardinals vs Chicago Cubs Match Preview and Free Picks

The Chicago Cubs picked up right where they left off before the All-Star break, and they’ll try to keep the hot streak going Friday when they host the St. Louis Cardinals for the second of a five-game series. The Cubs used a five-run fifth inning to rally for their major league-leading 31st comeback victory Thursday while posting their fourth consecutive victory.

The Cubs have won 13 of their last 16 games to build a three-game lead over Milwaukee in the National League Central. The Cardinals have lost four of their last five to fall 8 1/2 games behind Chicago. The Cubs were able to hang on in the opener despite a weakened bullpen, as closer Brandon Morrow was placed on the disabled list prior to the game with right biceps inflammation.

Chicago bolstered the pen by acquiring right-hander Jesse Chavez from Texas on Thursday in exchange for minor-league left-hander Tyler Thomas.

St. Louis Cardinals vs Chicago Cubs Starting Pitchers Report

Cardinals RH Jack Flaherty (3-4, 3.24 ERA): Flaherty is winless in his last six starts despite a solid 3.68 ERA over that stretch. The 22-year-old allowed two hits over five scoreless innings in his last start, and he likely would have gone deeper if not for a rain delay. Flaherty faced the Cubs on June 17 and struck out seven while allowing two hits over five scoreless frames.

Cubs LH Jon Lester (12-2, 2.58): Lester hasn’t lost since May 23, going 8-0 with a 2.80 ERA in nine starts over that stretch. The 34-year-old wasn’t quite as dominant in his last three starts before the All-Star break, allowing 11 runs (nine earned) in 16 2/3 innings. Lester is 7-4 with a 2.26 ERA in 17 starts against the Cardinals, including two wins this season.
