The Chicago Cubs will battle the Pittsburgh Pirates at PNC Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on Thursday, September 24, 2020, at 1:35 P.M, ET. The final match in this 4-game National League series is underway as the Pirates get the advantage with a 2-1 lead over the Cubs. Chicago took the 1st win in this series in game 1 at 5-0 but the Pirates rallied to take games 2 and 3 at 3-2 and 2-1. The Pirates remain in the 15th spot of the National League with a record of 17-39 and are 5th in the NL Central Division.

Pittsburgh is 1 win away from taking their 1st series since August 27 where they beat the Cardinals in a 2-game set. They have back-to-back wins and are 3-7 in their last 10 games.

Chicago Cubs vs Pittsburgh Pirates Predictions 9/24/2020

The battle is between the top NL central team and the worst NL central team and the worst team is actually winning right now. Chicago is struggling to take out the Pirates in this series and are now only hoping for a split in game 4. Cameron Maybin led the offense yesterday with 2 hits while Anthony Rizzo had 1 hit and a solo homer for the team. Kyle Hendricks got the loss after allowing 2 earned runs in 7.2 innings. Ian Happ continues to top Chicago’s offensive with 49 hits, 28 RBIs, and 12 homers this season at .257 BAA. Chicago owes their success this season to their great bullpen that is allowing only 3.85 earned runs per game which is in 8th place while their hitters rank 27th in the league with a BAA of .223 and have 240 total runs scored. The Cubs are 4th in the National League with a 32-24 record and are 1st in the NL Central Division. Alec Mills will be on the mound for the Cubs in the next game. He records 5-4 with a 4.14 ERA and 44 strikeouts this season. 

Chicago Cubs vs Pittsburgh Pirates. MLB’s pick for the game is the Chicago Cubs -182. Kuhl improved in his pitching game recently while Mills has done well for this month of September. The Pirates are doing well up to this point in the series but it’s unlikely they can take out the Cubs here. The series will most likely end in a split decision. Chicago is 6-3 in their last 9 games against the Pirates. Chicago will sink the Pirates to a predicted score of 7-2.
