The Chicago Cubs will try to redeem themselves after a 1-7 loss to the Detroit Tigers, the two teams are now tied one apiece in this three-game series. The Chicago Cubs will be calling lefty Jon Lester to the mound, Lester is 2-1 with a 5.06 ERA. Jon Lester gave up four home runs and eight ERs in 3.2 innings. Detroit will likely be calling upon Michael Fulmer who has started four games but has yet to be credited with a win or lose, Fulmer hasn't played particularly well this season as he had an ERA of 9.53 and has been pulled in three or fewer innings in all of his games this season. The Detroit Tigers have been one of the worst teams as they've given up the worst ERA at 6.01 and there batting isn't able to make up for the defense's shortcomings as they're batting average is below average and own one of the worse on-base percentages. Cub's pitcher Jon Lester should rebound as he's facing one of the weaker teams at-bat and then to make matters worse for Detroit, Michael Fulmer has been cold all season so far leading me to believe the Chicago Cubs win in a low scoring affair.
