The New York Yankees and the Chicago Cubs will both be gunning for a victory on Friday when they meet at Wrigley Field.

Michael Pineda will be the starting pitcher for the Yankees on this day. Right hander Pineda is 3-1 this season with a 3.14 ERA.

It’ll be Kyle Hendricks toeing the rubber for the Cubs in this contest. Right hander Hendricks is 2-1 with a 4.18 ERA so far this season.

Pineda had a rough outing in Tampa Bay to begin the season but has put together four straight solid starts, winning three of them. The 28-year-old earned the win last time out against Baltimore, allowing two unearned runs over 5 1/3 innings with eight strikeouts. Pineda has recorded at least six strikeouts in each of his five starts.

Hendricks struggled with his command in his first three starts of the season, but he has been much sharper in his last two outings. The 27-year-old followed up six scoreless frames at Pittsburgh on April 25 by limiting Boston to two runs over six innings in a no-decision last time out. Hendricks has never faced the Yankees.

Oddsmakers currently have the Cubs listed as 116-moneyline favorites versus the Yankees, while the game’s total has not yet been posted.

The New York Yankees make a rare trip to Wrigley Field for a three-game series beginning Friday. It’s a marquee interleague matchup between two of baseball’s most storied franchises, and a potential World Series preview.

It will be a reunion of the Cubs and former infielder Starlin Castro, who is batting .362 with five home runs in his second full season with the Yankees, and fellow former Cubs Aroldis Chapman and Adam Warren will receive their World Series rings prior to Friday’s game. The Cubs are back atop the National League Central and have won three straight after a 5-4 win in 13 innings against Philadelphia on Thursday. The Yankees lead the American League East after winning two straight and six of their last eight. The Yankees are aiming for a fifth straight victory when right-hander Michael Pineda starts, while the Cubs will send right-hander Kyle Hendricks to the mound.
