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

Zack Godley will be the starting pitcher for the Diamondbacks on this day. Right hander Godley is 4-4 this season with a 3.06 ERA.

Godley’s opponent in this one will be Jake Arrieta. The Cubs right hander has a 4.03 ERA to go along with a 10-7 record this season.

Godley snapped a four-start winless streak when he threw seven scoreless innings to win at St. Louis on Thursday, striking out seven. The 27-year-old has struck out at least six batters in seven straight starts, compiling 55 strikeouts in 44 innings over that stretch. The former Cubs farm hand faced Chicago once in 2015 and was tagged for six runs in 3 2/3 innings in a loss.

Arrieta has recorded three straight quality starts coming out of the All-Star break, going 2-0 with a 2.33 ERA. The 31-year-old allowed two runs and two hits over 6 2/3 innings to beat the Chicago White Sox last time out and has given up two or fewer runs in five of his last seven outings. Arrieta is 2-2 with a 3.31 ERA in five starts against Arizona.

Oddsmakers currently have the Cubs listed as 157-moneyline favorites versus the Diamondbacks, while the game’s total is sitting at 8.

The Chicago Cubs’ second-half revival has been powered by an improved pitching staff, and now the offense seems to be following suit. The Cubs look to continue their power surge when they host the Arizona Diamondbacks for the second of a three-game series Wednesday night.

Chicago blasted five home runs in a 16-4 victory in Tuesday’s series opener, improving to 14-3 since the All-Star break and maintaining a 2 1/2-game lead over Milwaukee in the National League Central. The Cubs set a season high for runs and tied their season highs for hits (17) and homers. Arizona dropped to second in the NL Wild Card standings with the loss, falling to 7-10 in the second half and 24-28 on the road. The Diamondbacks had allowed double-digit runs only once all season, in a 10-4 loss at St. Louis on June 29.

In their last action, Chicago was a 16-4 winner on the road against the Diamondbacks. Bettors on Chicago at -182 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (20) sent OVER bettors home happy as well.

Last time out for Arizona, they were a 16-4 loser as they battled the Cubs on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Cubs at -182 were rewarded, while the 20 combined runs moved the game OVER for totals bettors.
