Chicago Cubs @ Pittsburgh Pirates: CUBS 2.46

Happy opening day everyone! Here’s the first tip of 2014 against the two central rivals, the Chicago Cubs and Pittsburgh Pirates. They are set to play this afternoon at the PNC park in Pittsburgh.  On the mound today we can expenct to see Jeff Samardzija and Francisco Liriano  for this afternoons game. The right handed pitcher Jeff Samardzija has played with the cubs for the past 3 years and has 8 wins and 13 loses in his 2013 season. Samardzija finished 2013 with a 4.34 ERA, which was not as good as previous years but he is looking good to make a  come back for the 2014 season. Liriano is on his second year with the pirates. In the 2013 season Liriano had 16 wins and 8 loses; his ERA of 3.02 for last year was a improvement from his 2012 season. His (WHIP 1.22) and (AVG .224) have been ok in his previous years.  The two teams last game was 9/25/13 in Chicago with the Cubs coming out on top! Note that Liriano pitched 5 innings in that game, gave up 8 hits, and 4 runs against Chicago. We’ll take the Cubs to upset the Pirates this afternoon on opening day!
