It’s the third meeting already between the Buccos and the Cubbies, and with both teams under .500, I expect another close affair. Zach Davies has been just as bad as Trevor Cahill, so if Pittsburgh’s bats are going to come alive, today could be the day. Make sure you check out Jeremy’s preview, where we get some insight into the Cubbies.

Let’s go Bucs!
