Chicago at Philadelphia
Sunday 09/13 01:35 PM Eastern
1 unit on Philadelphia +175 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 2.75) RESULT: WIN
The Phillies are home and have not lost a season series to the Cubs since 2010. They come off a 7-5 win over Chicago as a +190 dog. Philadelphia's Cody Asche belted a tiebreaking two-run homer with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning for the win. Road weary Chicago plays its seventh straight road contest, part of an 11-game trip. The Cubs turn to aging Dan Haren, who is 4-6 on the road with a 4.20 ERA. Haren is off a strong game, but had been largely ineffective in his first six starts with the Cubs, going 0-2 with a 5.87 ERA and failing to produce a single quality start. Haren is 1-1 with a 4.50 ERA in three outings versus Philadelphia this season, and in his last start against them allowed five runs in six innings. The Cubs are 2-6 against a team with a winning percentage below .400. Phillies veteran Aaron Harang won his last start versus the Cubs with six solid innings, improving to 12-8 with a 4.31 ERA in 28 career starts against them, so grab the big home dog. Play Philadelphia.
