The Pittsburgh Pirates are dominating the Cubs behind local boy Garrett Jones. In four games this year against the Cubs, Jones is hitting .588 with 10RBI. Andrew McCutchen is now sixth in the league in hitting with his .336
What a huge difference some offene makes huh?
Paul Maholm will face Ryan Dempster this afternoon. Maholm is coming off of his worst start on the season, it was his only blip in five starts. He went just 3.1IP against the Cards and gave up four earned runs.
Dempster had a blip his last time out as well. A three run homer by the Reds Joey Votto in the seventh inning ruined a seven strikeout day.
