Total of the Week - Rickenbach MLB Rotation #951 Thursday 10* Top Play OVER the total in Pittsburgh Pirates vs Chicago Cubs @ 4:05 ET - The wind is expecting to be blowing out to center when this game first gets started. It is then expected to shift more toward a westerly direction which will have it blowing out toward right field for the remainder of the game. It will be a rather strong wind and is certain to help the hitters in this one. Jon Lester gets the start for the Cubs in this one and he has good numbers against the Pirates this season. However, in a hitter-friendly environment and an afternoon game at Wrigley Field, I look for Lester to get lit up. Keep in mind, after a strong July, Lester has been fading ever since as he has a 6.91 ERA in his last 8 starts. Steven Brault gets the start for the Pirates and one thing I want to mention before getting into his pitching stats is that he is also a threat with his bat. Brault is hitting .314 on the season! Though he is 4-0 in his road starts this season, Brault is getting hit at a .280 clip away from home. Also, the Pirates lefty allowed 4 earned runs in 3 innings in his lone start at Wrigley Field this season. Brault entered this season with a 5.87 ERA in his 7 career outings (2 starts) at Wrigley Field and the Cubs have hit over .300 against him in his career. The over is 12-5-2 in the Pirates last 19 games. The over is 25-11 in Pittsburgh's games against left-handed starters this season. 10* OVER the total in Chicago Cubs
