 A winning streak will be on the line for the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday when they battle the Pittsburgh Pirates at PNC Park.

Jake Arrieta will be the starting pitcher for the Cubs on this day. Right hander Arrieta is 18-7 this season with a 2.85 ERA.

Arrieta has been inconsistent with his command, but he was dominant last time out as he tossed seven scoreless innings in a win over St. Louis. The 30-year-old struck out 10 and walked one, a trend the Cubs would like to see him continue heading into the postseason. Arrieta is 9-2 with a 2.44 ERA in 14 career starts versus the Pirates, but he has surrendered six runs in each of his last two outings against them.

The Pirates will counter Arrieta with Jameson Taillon. Right hander Taillon has a 3.58 ERA to go along with a 4-4 record this season.

The Pirates have been conservative with Taillon, keeping his pitch count under 100 in 15 of his 17 major-league starts. The 24-year-old has allowed three runs or fewer in each of his last four starts and gave up three runs and six hits over five innings in a no-decision against Washington last time out. Taillon faced the Cubs in his third career start on June 19 and took the loss, allowing four runs and eight hits over four frames.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Cubs listed as 157-moneyline favorites versus the Pirates, while the game’s total is sitting at 7.
