This is a 10* play on the CUBS

The Cubs host Oakland tonight and the game will be on ESPN. It was a huge sweep over the weekend for the Cubs as they took all three games from Milwaukee to re-establish themselves as the team to beat in the NL Central. While that was going on, the A's did the Cubs a favor by beating St. Louis twice. Unfortunately for the A's, we think that they're reward will be little more than a "thank you" here at Wrigley Field. A real advantage for the Cubs tonight is they'll have Kyle Hendricks pitching. Not only does he sport a 1.89 ERA/0.88 WHIP in nine home starts, he's got a 0.95 ERA/0.90 WHIP his last three overall. The last two two starts, which came at Milwaukee and St. Louis, saw Hendricks not allow a single run for 12 innings. Oakland's Chris Bassitt threw six scoreless innings himself in his last start, but the difference is that his performance was atypical. Bassitt is also winless in seven interleague starts. The Cubs are really strong at home. They've won 11 of the last 13 games at Wrigley to move to 39-18 here for the year. Play on CHICAGO
