The Chicago Cubs and the Tampa Bay Rays will both be gunning for a victory on Wednesday when they meet at Tropicana Field in an interleague contest.

The Cubs will trot Jon Lester out to the mound in this one. Left hander Lester has a 11-7 record and a 4.30 ERA this season.

Starting this game for the Rays will be Blake Snell. The left hander has a 4.33 ERA to go along with a 3-6 record this season.

Lester has won three straight outings and recorded quality starts in his last two. The 33-year-old has struggled with his command somewhat in his last two starts, walking four each time out, but has limited the damage to three runs over 12 innings. Lester is 13-10 with a 4.22 ERA in 29 starts against the Rays, a frequent foe during his time in Boston.

Snell has won his last three decisions, and the Rays have won six of his last eight starts. The 24-year-old didn’t get a decision in his last outing Sept. 12 against the New York Yankees, allowing one run and two hits over five-plus innings. Snell faced the Cubs on July 5 at Wrigley Field and threw five scoreless innings in a no-decision.

Oddsmakers opened the Cubs as -125-moneyline favorites versus the Rays, while the game’s total opened at 8.

The Chicago Cubs hope they’re getting hot at the right time. The Cubs have won seven straight contests and are closing in on another National League Central title as they wrap up a two-game interleague series against the host Tampa Bay Rays on Wednesday.

Chicago reduced its magic number to clinch the division to nine with a 2-1 win over the Rays on Tuesday, as Mike Montgomery and three relievers combined on a one-hitter. Left-hander Jon Lester will try to keep the Rays’ offense on its heels as he returns to one of his former American League East haunts for the first time since 2014. Brad Miller’s solo homer was the only hit Tuesday for the Rays, who have lost eight of their last 11 and scored two or fewer runs in seven of their last 12 contests. The Cubs lead the NL Central by 3 1/2 games over Milwaukee, while the Rays are nearing elimination from the American League playoff race – sitting five games behind Minnesota for the second wild card.

Tampa Bay lost its last outing, a 2-1 result against the Cubs on September 19. Bettors who backed the Cubs at 132 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (3) sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.

In their last action, Chicago was a 2-1 winner on the road against the Rays. Bettors on Chicago at 132 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (3) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.
