San Francisco over Chicago

8:05 PM EST. Jordan Hicks (RHP - SF) will get his 15th start of the season after he gave up three runs on five hits over 4.2 IP versus the Astros last Tuesday. Hicks struck out five and walked just one, so despite being sick for that turn, he pitched admirably. He will pitch on a full five days' rest here versus the Cubs, who, on offense, have scored fewer runs than the Giants (298 to 315) and rank 21st in wRC+ to the Giants' 12th in the same 72 games played.

Javier Assad (RHP - CHC) is not as good as his surface ERA of 2.81 would suggest, as his xERA is an inflated 4.08. Some extreme luck has supported Assad, as his strand rate is high and his Batting Average of Balls in Play (BABIP) is low while his swing and miss rate is a weak 6.5%. In short, dude isn’t fooling anybody, and he is coming off a run in which he has failed to pitch into the sixth inning in five straight starts. Assad is fade fodder, pure and simple. Attack.
