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 Wednesday.

The Pirates will trot Ivan Nova out to the mound in this one. Right hander Nova has a 11-11 record and a 3.97 ERA this season.

Nova’s opponent in this one will be Jose Quintana. The Cubs left hander has a 4.49 ERA to go along with a 8-11 record this season.

Nova has struggled in the second half, going 2-5 with a 6.00 ERA in eight starts. The 30-year-old Dominican has lost three of his last four turns, including his last outing at Cincinnati in which he allowed seven runs – five earned – in five innings. Nova is 2-0 with a 2.84 ERA in three career starts against the Cubs.

Quintana is 4-3 with a 4.50 ERA in eight starts since being acquired from the crosstown White Sox. The 28-year-old Colombian was dominant in his Cubs debut and posted quality starts in his first three outings, but he was tagged for six runs and nine hits over five innings in a loss at Philadelphia in his last turn. Quintana’s only previous start against the Pirates was in 2015, when he allowed three runs and nine hits over six frames in a loss.

Oddsmakers currently have the Cubs listed as 200-moneyline favorites versus the Pirates, while the game’s total is sitting at 8.5.

The Chicago Cubs aim for a second consecutive series sweep at home when they wrap up a three-game set against the visiting Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday. Chicago has won five straight at Wrigley Field and eight of its last 11 overall to open a 3 1/2-game lead over Milwaukee in the National League Central.

Anthony Rizzo remained hot on Tuesday with a pair of doubles among his three hits in the Cubs’ 4-1 victory. Rizzo is 10-for-18 during his five-game hitting streak and is batting .439 with 23 RBIs over his last 15 contests. Pittsburgh hopes Ivan Nova can help cool off Rizzo and register his third win over the Cubs this season when he opposes Jose Quintana in the series finale. The fading Pirates have lost 12 of their last 17 games, including seven of their last nine on the road.

Last time out for Chicago, they were a 4-1 winner as they battled the Pirates on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Cubs at -235 were rewarded, while the 5 combined runs moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.

Pittsburgh lost its last outing, a 4-1 result against the Cubs on August 29. Bettors who backed the Cubs at -235 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (5) sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.
