10-unit Play Take #912 Chicago Cubs over San Francisco Giants (8:05pm EST) A big series gets underway in Wrigley Field as the Cubs host the Giants in the first of four games. These teams are separated by just a half game in the wild card race as we enter the final third of the season. This matchup couldn't have come at a better time for the Cubs as they've won six of seven. They also manage to avoid Madison Bumgarner in this series as he pitched yesterday. Thursday's matchup will feature Chris Heston versus Jason Hammel. Both hurlers are having very good seasons, but each has struggled of late. I give a slight edge to Hammel today, as I think he can right the ship sooner than the rookie. Heston may be hitting the proverbial wall that first year pitchers often times do. He's thrown 130.2 innings this season, and the Giants probably want to limit him to 180 or so this season. Chicago's offense has been swinging the bats well, so I think they could bounce Heston early from this one. Take the red hot Cubs at home to win the first game of this important series.
