The fans at Wrigley Field will be treated to a game between the Philadelphia Phillies and the Chicago Cubs when they take their seats on Tuesday.

The Phillies will give the ball to starter Jeremy Hellickson in this one. Right hander Hellickson is 4-0 this season with a 1.80 ERA.

The Cubs will counter Hellickson with Jon Lester. Left hander Lester has a 3.68 ERA to go along with a 0-1 record this season.

Hellickson has not allowed more than two runs in any of his five outings and has recorded three straight quality starts. The 30-year-old hasn’t missed many bats – he has recorded just 11 strikeouts in 30 innings – but he scattered seven hits over six frames while limiting Miami to one run last time out. Hellickson has faced the Cubs only once, allowing three runs over 6 2/3 innings in a win in 2015.

After three solid outings to start the season, Lester has allowed five runs in each of his last two starts. The 33-year-old gave up 10 hits, including a pair of home runs, in 5 2/3 innings of a loss at Pittsburgh on Wednesday. Lester won both of his starts against the Phillies last season, allowing two runs – one earned – over 14 1/3 frames.

Oddsmakers currently have the Cubs listed as 202-moneyline favorites versus the Phillies, while the game’s total is sitting at 7½.

After matching a season high for home runs and snapping a three-game skid in the series opener, the Philadelphia Phillies hope the friendly confines of Wrigley Field remain as welcoming when they continue their three-game series against the host Chicago Cubs on Tuesday. Philadelphia belted three home runs in a 10-2 triumph in Monday’s opener, recording its second-highest run output of the season.

The Cubs have dropped four of their last five, and the 10 runs allowed on Monday were a season high, although three relievers combined to allow just three over 7 2/3 innings. Chicago dropped to 4-6 at Wrigley Field, where it went 57-24 a year ago. The Phillies look to remain unbeaten when Jeremy Hellickson starts, while Chicago’s Jon Lester aims to continue his dominance over Philadelphia – he is 6-0 with a 1.46 ERA in eight career meetings. Lester will be happy to return to Wrigley Field, where he has posted a 0.69 ERA in two starts this season compared with a 6.06 mark on the road.
