The fans at Wrigley Field will be treated to a game between the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Chicago Cubs when they take their seats on Tuesday.

Chad Kuhl will be the starting pitcher for the Pirates on this day. Right hander Kuhl is 6-9 this season with a 4.52 ERA.

It’ll be Jake Arrieta toeing the rubber for the Cubs in this contest. Right hander Arrieta is 13-8 with a 3.49 ERA so far this season.

Kuhl has enjoyed a solid month of August, going 3-2 with a 3.33 ERA in five starts. The 24-year-old has struggled with his command a bit of late, issuing five walks in two of his last three starts, and he lasted only four innings in a loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Thursday. Kuhl is 0-3 with a 13.20 ERA in five starts against the Cubs.

Arrieta has been locked in since the All-Star break, going 5-1 with a 1.78 ERA in eight starts. The 31-year-old has not allowed more than two earned runs in any of those outings, and he held Cincinnati to one unearned run over 5 2/3 innings in a no-decision Thursday. Arrieta loves pitching at Wrigley Field, where he is 29-14 with a 2.34 ERA in 58 career starts.

Oddsmakers currently have the Cubs listed as 202-moneyline favorites versus the Pirates, while the game’s total is sitting at 8.

Jake Arrieta once had the Pittsburgh Pirates’ number, but the Bucs have flipped the script the past two years. Arrieta and the Chicago Cubs hope to reverse that recent trend when the former Cy Young Award winner takes the mound for the second game of a three-game set against the visiting Pirates on Tuesday.

Arrieta posted a 0.75 ERA in five starts against the Pirates during his Cy Young campaign in 2015, but he has lost his last four decisions against Pittsburgh. The momentum swing has helped Pittsburgh lead the season series 7-6, though the Cubs breezed to a 6-1 win in Monday’s series opener. Chicago is 31-22 against National League Central opponents, which has contributed to the Cubs’ 2 1/2-game lead over second-place Milwaukee. The Cubs have won four straight at home and are 27-15 since the All-Star break.

The Cubs were a 6-1 winner in their most recent outing on the road against the Pirates. That made winners of bettors who got Chicago at -175 on the moneyline, while the total score (7) was good news for UNDER bettors.
