The fans at Wrigley Field will be treated to a game between the San Diego Padres and the Chicago Cubs when they take their seats on Wednesday.

The Padres will pin their hopes on the pitching of right hander Miguel Diaz in this game. Diaz has a 1-1 record and a 7.36 ERA this season.

Meanwhile, it’ll be Eddie Butler who starts for the Cubs. Right hander Butler is 3-2 with a 4.41 ERA so far this season.

Diaz still is getting stretched out after being used 21 times out of the bullpen over the first two months of the season. The 22-year-old rookie pitched two-plus scoreless innings in his first major-league start against Kansas City and gave up four runs and five hits over 3 1/3 frames at Milwaukee on Friday. Diaz hasn’t pitched in a Padres win since May 2, a span of 11 outings.

Butler hasn’t posted a quality start since his Cubs debut on May 12, but he has given his team a chance to win just about every time out. The 26-year-old matched his season high with 94 pitches in a no-decision at Pittsburgh on Friday, allowing four runs and four hits over 5 2/3 innings. Butler’s worst outing of the season came at San Diego on May 30, when he gave up six runs and seven hits over 4 1/3 innings of a loss.

Oddsmakers currently have the Cubs listed as 186-moneyline favorites versus the Padres, while the game’s total is sitting at 9.

Despite some early-season struggles, the Chicago Cubs have a chance to sit atop the National League Central by the end of the day on Wednesday. The Cubs begin the day just one-half game behind division-leading Milwaukee as they aim for a fourth straight victory and a three-game sweep of the visiting San Diego Padres.

Some of the blame for Chicago’s disappointing start falls on an inconsistent lineup, but moving slugging first baseman Anthony Rizzo to the leadoff spot has helped spark the offense. Rizzo has reached base to open the game in all seven contests since moving to the top of the order, the longest streak by a Cubs leadoff man since Richie Ashburn in 1960. He’s the first player in the last 60 years to reach in his first plate appearance in each of his first seven games batting leadoff, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. The Padres swept a three-game home series against the Cubs last month but have continued their road woes in the first two games at Wrigley Field, dropping to 11-26 away from home with losses in nine of their last 11 road contests.

Last time out for Chicago, they were a 4-0 winner as they battled the Padres on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Cubs at -188 were rewarded, while the 4 combined runs moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.

San Diego lost its last outing, a 4-0 result against the Cubs on June 20. Bettors who backed the Cubs at -188 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (4) sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.
