PA Insider - Rickenbach MLB Game #903 Wednesday 8* Chicago Cubs Money Line (-) @ Pittsburgh Pirates @ 7:05 ET - I am expecting Cole Hamels to enjoy his return to the National League and he'll take advantage of facing a Pirates team that hasn't seen him in over two years. Also, the southpaw should plenty of run support here as Pittsburgh starter Nick Kingham will be facing the Cubs for the 3rd time already this season. Though Kingham has a 3.75 ERA against them this season, he did allow 8 hits in less than 6 innings the only time he faced them in Pittsburgh. Now, facing them for a 3rd time this season, look for the Cubs to come up with a very strong effort at the plate against Kingham here while the Pirates sticks struggle against Hamels. Since July of 2015 until now, Pittsburgh has only seen the Cubs left-hander once. The Cubs lost yesterday's game 5-4 but note that Chicago is 4-0 the last 4 times they were off of a loss where they scored 3 or more runs in the defeat. Also, the Cubs are a perfect 4-0 the last 4 times they were off of a loss by the margin of a single run. I am looking for those perfect runs to continue here as Hamels outduels Kingham. 8* CHICAGO CUBS
