Baez has huge night in win

Cubs second baseman Javier Baez was at the forefront of helping his squad end their losing streak Tuesday night as he went 4-for-5 with a pair of home runs, a double, two runs and five RBIs in a 9-4 triumph. Ben Zobrist finished 3-for-6 with two runs and an RBI. Willson Contreras was 2-for-4 with a walk, a run and an RBI. Addison Russell ended his night 3-for-5 with two runs and an RBI. Jon Lester picked up the win as he allowed two earned runs on four hits with four strikeouts and a walk over five innings.

Bellinger has two-hit night

Dodgers center fielder Cody Bellinger ended his night 2-for-4 with a run and an RBI to lead his offense in the defeat. Max Muncy went 1-for-3 with a walk, a run and an RBI. Yimi Garcia suffered the loss in relief as he allowed three unearned runs on two hits with a strikeout in two-thirds of an inning.

Kyle Hendricks (5-7, 3.73 ERA) will start today for Chicago, while LA counters with Alex Wood (3-5, 4.13).

MLB Betting Trends

Chicago

The under is 13-6 in Hendricks' last 19 road starts. Chicago is 4-9 in the last 13 meetings.

Los Angeles

The Dodgers are 6-2 in their last eight home games. The under is 9-3 in the last 12 Los Angeles games overall.

Prediction:

Chicago is a very streaky team and often it only takes one solid performance to trend back in the right direction. Hendricks hasn't been great this season, but often he is sufficient enough and gives his squad a chance to win. Wood has had his fair share of issues and I suspect the Cubs will make him pay a couple times.
