This is an 8* play on the CUBS

After coming through for us on Monday, the Cubs failed to do so on Tuesday, losing 11-4 to the A's. A poor performance prompted Cubs starter Jon Lester to refer to himself as the "weak link" of the rotation, but fortunately for today we've got Jose Quintana, whose last six starts have all ended up as Cubs victories. This has been discussed each of the last two days, but the Cubs are a much better team here at Wrigley than they are on the road. Their home record is 40-19. Only two teams (Houston, LA Dodgers) have better home marks. Oakland is stuck with Homer Bailey for this rubber match and that's not a good sign. Bailey has a 6.97 ERA in four starts since coming over from KC and his performances on the road have been consistently bad all year. In 10 road starts, he has a 6.44 ERA and 1.615 WHIP. Quintana allowed just two runs in six innings his last time out and we just can't see the Cubs dropping two in a row at home. They are 31-17 in day games this year. Play on CHICAGO
