Diamondbacks at Cubs todays match up of the day
July 20, 2007 § Leave a comment
I found todays game between the Diamondbacks and the Cubs to be an intresting match up. Brandon Webb will get the start for the Diamondbacks today. Webb has a 8-7 record with a 3.42 era with a 122 strike outs in 136.2 innings pitched. The Cubs are sending Jason Marquis to the hill. Marquis has a 6-5 record with a 4.03 era with 64 strike outs in 109.1 innings pitched. The Cubs are really coming on this year and playing very good baseball. Perhaps the dug out fighting and the dirt kicking ejection of manager Lou Piniella has fired up this team. The Cubs are trully on a roll and they look to continue against the Diamdbacks. But you cant count out the Diamondbacks in this one. They are playing pretty good baseball as well. The Cubs and Diamondbacks have a very similar record. The Cubs are 50-44 and in second place in the NL Central, and the Diamondbacks are 50-47 and third in the NL West.
