Central contenders starts tonight as the league's betting favorite the 'Cubs' enter Pittsburgh with the best record in baseball and a three-game lead. The last time the Pirates Gerrit Cole (2-2, 2.78 ERA) faced Chicago was in the NL Wild Card in October when the Cubs jumped on him early and won 4-0 and dropped to 7-1 lifetime against the Cubs. Jason Hammel (3-0, 0.75) is off to a great start this season and has had mixed results against the Bucs going 5-5 with a 4.03 ERA. Take PITTSBURGH!
