The Chicago Cubs and the Arizona Diamondbacks will both be trying to pick up a win on Friday when they battle at Chase Field.

The Cubs will give the ball to starter John Lackey in this one. Right hander Lackey is 9-9 this season with a 4.81 ERA.

Meanwhile, it’ll be Taijuan Walker who starts for the Diamondbacks. Right hander Walker is 6-5 with a 3.60 ERA so far this season.

Lackey has thrived since the All-Star break, going 4-0 with a 3.00 ERA in four starts, although he has worked more than five innings just once in that span. The stretch marks the first time the 38-year-old Texan has won four consecutive turns since July 2011 while with Boston. Lackey owns a 4-0 record and 2.76 ERA in five career starts against Arizona.

Walker’s winless streak reached seven starts on Saturday, when he allowed three runs over six innings in a no-decision at San Francisco. The 24-year-old native of Louisiana has not pitched poorly during the drought, giving up three earned runs or fewer in six of his seven outings since defeating the Rockies in Colorado on June 21. Walker, who never has faced Chicago, has posted a 4.14 ERA in eight starts at home – more than a full run higher than his 3.11 road mark.

Oddsmakers currently have the Diamondbacks listed as 119-moneyline favorites versus the Cubs, while the game’s total is sitting at 10.

The Chicago Cubs are hoping a day off helps them snap out of their funk and build their lead in the National League Central. The reigning world champions will find out Friday, when they visit the Arizona Diamondbacks for the opener of their three-game series.

Chicago has lost two straight and six of its last eight as its division lead has dwindled to one game over St. Louis. The slide began at the beginning of the month, when the Cubs dropped the last two contests of their three-game home set against the Diamondbacks. Arizona also is slumping as it has lost two in a row and four of its last five after dropping an 8-6 decision at home to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Thursday. J.D. Martinez belted his seventh home run in 18 games with the Diamondbacks while Paul Goldschmidt, who registered his first career three-homer effort at Chicago on Aug. 3, ended his six-game hitting streak by going 0-for-5.

In their last action, Arizona was a 8-6 loser on the road against the Dodgers. Bettors on Los Angeles at -175 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (14) sent OVER bettors home happy as well.

In their last action, Chicago was a 3-1 loser on the road against the Giants. Bettors on San Francisco at -132 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (4) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.
