The St. Louis Cardinals and the Chicago Cubs will both be trying to pick up a win on Friday when they battle at Wrigley Field.

The Cardinals will trot Mike Leake out to the mound in this one. Right hander Leake has a 9-10 record and a 4.54 ERA this season.

Leake is winless in three starts since returning from the disabled list, but he has produced quality starts in his last two outings. One of those came in a home loss to the Cubs on Sept. 12, dropping him to 9-4 with a 3.29 ERA in 22 career starts versus Chicago. The 28-year-old’s next victory will give him four straight seasons of double-digit wins.

Meanwhile, it’ll be Jake Arrieta who starts for the Cubs. Right hander Arrieta is 17-7 with a 2.96 ERA so far this season.

Arrieta has lost two of his last three starts and continues to fight sporadic command of his fastball. The reigning Cy Young Award winner issued four walks in a loss to Milwaukee last time out, giving up four runs (three earned) over six innings. Arrieta is 6-2 with a 2.03 ERA in 12 career starts against the Cardinals, including a 2-1 mark and 3.45 ERA in three meetings this year.
