The Cubs are for real. They own the best record in the majors and have won eight in a row. The offensive difference in this game is huge. The Cubs are averaging 5.7 runs per game and 6.6 per game vs. LHP. San DIego gets 3.7 per game and 3.6 vs. RHP. Wilfredo Ledezma is winless on the season and has posted a 7.50 ERA over his last three starts, going just 4.0 innings per start on average. This season the Cubs are 24-7 vs. low-power teams (those averaging under one home run per game). They are also 13-3 vs. teams who strike out 7+ times per game and 32-14 as a favorite. The Pads are 7-18 vs. winning teams and 9-22 as an underdog. Cubbies here.
