The Chicago Cubs and the Arizona Diamondbacks will both be gunning for a victory on Saturday when they meet at Chase Field.

The Cubs will pin their hopes on the pitching of left hander Jon Lester in this game. Lester has a 8-6 record and a 3.97 ERA this season.

Meanwhile, it’ll be Patrick Corbin who starts for the Diamondbacks. Left hander Corbin is 8-11 with a 4.83 ERA so far this season.

Lester extended his unbeaten streak to five starts on Sunday, when he allowed three runs and six hits over 6 2/3 innings against Washington in his second straight no-decision. The 33-year-old native of Washington has not lost on the road since May 28 at the Los Angeles Dodgers, going 4-0 in his last five turns away from home. Lester has yet to be defeated by Arizona as he is 2-0 despite sporting a 4.94 ERA in five career starts, including a no-decision on Aug. 1 in which he yielded three runs over four frames.

After winning his final two starts of July, Corbin has dropped both of his outings this month, surrendering 14 runs – 10 earned – and 17 hits over nine innings. Both setbacks came on the road, where the 28-year-old New Yorker is 2-8 with a 6.79 ERA in 11 turns this season. Corbin has made five career appearances (four starts) against the Cubs and won his first three decisions before being tagged for eight runs and 10 hits – three homers – in three frames opposite Lester at Chicago on Aug. 1.

Oddsmakers currently have the Cubs listed as 110-moneyline favorites versus the Diamondbacks, while the game’s total is sitting at 9½.

Two teams that are feeling the heat from a charging St. Louis team square off Saturday as the Chicago Cubs visit the Arizona Diamondbacks for the middle contest of their three-game set. Chicago posted an 8-3 victory in Friday’s series opener to avoid a three-game slide and maintain a one-game lead in the National League Central over the Cardinals, who have won seven in a row.

Kris Bryant led the Cubs’ 11-hit attack by going 3-for-3, extending his hitting streak to eight games in the process. St. Louis also is closing in on Arizona, which has dropped three straight and seen its advantage of the Cardinals for the NL’s second wild-card spot shrink to 4 1/2 games. Paul Goldschmidt hopes to continue his assault on Chicago pitching on Saturday as he has belted four home runs in his last two games against the Cubs. The slugger has registered 12 of his team-leading 91 RBIs over his last eight contests and is nine away from reaching the century mark for the third time in his career.

Last time out for Arizona, they were a 8-3 loser as they battled the Cubs on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Cubs at 108 were rewarded, while the 11 combined runs moved the game OVER for totals bettors.

The Cubs were a 8-3 winner in their most recent outing on the road against the Diamondbacks. That made winners of bettors who got Chicago at 108 on the moneyline, while the total score (11) was good news for OVER bettors.
