The fans at Guaranteed Rate Field will be treated to a interleague game between the Chicago Cubs and the Chicago White Sox when they take their seats on Thursday.

Jon Lester will be the starting pitcher for the Cubs on this day. Left hander Lester is 7-6 this season with a 3.95 ERA.

It’ll be Mike Pelfrey toeing the rubber for the White Sox in this contest. Right hander Pelfrey is 3-7 with a 4.46 ERA so far this season.

Lester took a perfect game into the sixth inning Saturday against St. Louis, matching his season high with 10 strikeouts and allowing three hits over eight innings. The 33-year-old has given up three runs over 15 frames while winning his first two starts since the All-Star break. Lester is 6-6 with a 4.43 ERA in 14 starts against the White Sox.

Pelfrey is winless over his last six outings (five starts) and has posted a 6.65 ERA over that span. The 33-year-old held Kansas City to one run and two hits over five innings last time out, but he also walked six in a no-decision. Pelfrey is 2-0 with a 1.66 ERA in three starts against the Cubs, but he hasn’t faced them since 2011.

Oddsmakers currently have the Cubs listed as 231-moneyline favorites versus the White Sox, while the game’s total is sitting at 10.

For the first time since May 26, the Chicago Cubs sit alone atop the National League Central. The defending World Series champions will try to hold onto that perch when they head to the South Side to face the crosstown-rival Chicago White Sox in the finale of a four-game, home-and-home series Thursday.

The Cubs have won 10 of 12 since the All-Star break to move a season-best six games over .500, and they regained the division lead with an 8-3 win Wednesday in which Anthony Rizzo went 3-for-4 with four RBIs. The White Sox are going in the opposite direction, having lost six straight at home and 11 of 12 overall to fall a season-high 20 games below .500. After dropping the opener of the series, the Cubs won the past two meetings and have a chance to reclaim the Crosstown Cup for the first time since 2014. The Cubs have won six of their last seven interleague games.

Chicago was a 8-3 loser in its last match on the road against the Cubs. They lost as +237 underdogs, while the total score of 11 made winners of OVER bettors.

The Cubs were a 8-3 winner in their most recent outing on the road against the White Sox. That made winners of bettors who got Chicago at -260 on the moneyline, while the total score (11) was good news for OVER bettors.
