Chicago Cubs Analysis

The Chicago Cubs’ offense has been one of the stars this season, hitting an outstanding.253 average and scoring 725 runs – including 173 homers! Additionally, with an on-base percentage (.328) and slugging percentage (.418) of both healthy numbers; their attacks present serious challenges to any pitching staff in any given matchup.

Jordan Wicks has demonstrated remarkable poise and skill during his brief MLB career. Boasting an outstanding 3-0 record with an exceptional 2.16 ERA, Wicks exudes winning mentality on the mound and his WHIP of only 1.2 over 16.2 innings displays outstanding control; additionally his limited hit total of 16 hits (4 walks, and only one homer allowed) shows an outstanding pitcher capable of dominating.

What sets the Cubs apart is their incredible synergy between their batting lineup and pitching staff. Jordan Wicks’ control and poise pair seamlessly with an offense capable of providing ample run support, creating an impregnable team. Furthermore, their stellar situational statistics allow them to capitalize on any errors or weakness the Rockies might display and ensure victory!

Colorado Rockies Analysis

The Rockies may be struggling this season, but that doesn’t have to be their offense’s sole fault. Their team batting average stands at an impressive.247 and they have amassed 623 runs with 137 homers so far. Their on-base and slugging percentages (.308 and.399) demonstrate they can still get runners on base while moving them around–just not as effectively as other teams do.

Kyle Freeland has endured an up-and-down season, posting a 6-14 record and 5.09 ERA. While maintaining an acceptable 1.47 WHIP across 146.2 innings pitched, Freeland allowed 175 hits including 28 home runs. Furthermore, his strikeout-to-walk ratio wasn’t particularly impressive, recording just 91 strikeouts against 41 walks.

For the Rockies to have any chance, they need Freeland to deliver his usual stellar performances, something which hasn’t always happened this season. Their offense could score runs, but with Freeland struggling and facing such a powerful lineup from Chicago as their opponent they will need much more than an average performance from both Freeland and their starting pitcher in order to emerge victorious.

Chicago Cubs vs. Colorado Rockies Against the Spread
