Divisional bragging rights will be on the line on Tuesday when the Chicago Cubs and the Pittsburgh Pirates meet at PNC Park.

Right hander Kyle Hendricks will take the mound for the Cubs to start this game. Hendricks is 1-1 this season with a 6.19 ERA.

The Pirates will counter Hendricks with Gerrit Cole. Right hander Cole has a 4.70 ERA to go along with a 1-2 record this season.

Hendricks has struggled in his first three outings, failing to record a quality start. The 27-year-old uncharacteristically has had command problems, issuing seven walks in 16 innings, and has served up four home runs. Hendricks is 3-2 with a 3.77 ERA in eight career starts against the Pirates, including a loss on April 14.

After a rocky season debut in Boston, Cole has posted three straight quality starts and increased his strikeout total in each. The 26-year-old beat Hendricks and the Cubs on April 14 and struck out eight last time out while holding St. Louis to two runs and six hits over six frames. Cole is 9-2 with a 3.00 ERA in 12 career starts against the Cubs.

Oddsmakers currently have the Cubs listed as 129-moneyline favorites versus the Pirates, while the game’s total is sitting at 7½.

After being swept by Pittsburgh at home earlier this month, the Chicago Cubs exacted some revenge by pounding the Pirates in the opener of their three-game series in the Steel City. The Cubs hope to keep the offense rolling when the set continues on Tuesday.

Chicago registered 17 hits in a 14-3 thumping of the Pirates on Monday, as Addison Russell went 4-for-6 while Jason Heyward homered and drove in four runs. The Cubs have scored 53 runs while winning five of their last six games. Much of the increased production is due to the long ball, as Chicago has belted 12 home runs over its last six games after going deep just nine times in its first 13 contests. The Pirates’ pitching staff had been excellent early on but has surrendered 10 or more runs in two of its last three games and has dropped five of its last seven.
