Chicago vs Philadelphia Probable Pitchers

Cubs left-hander Justin Steele is winless in July (0-1) after going unbeaten (2-0) in June. Since the beginning of June, Steele has held the opposition to one earned run in four of his past seven starts. He’s worked at least five innings in eight consecutive starts.

However, Steele’s struggles on the road are continuing. He’s 0-2 in six starts away from Wrigley Field with a 5.86 ERA. His road WHIP is 1.52.

This will be the first time in his career that Steele is facing the Phillies.

Steele vs Gibson

3-6 Record 5-3
4.15 ERA 4.35
3.56 xERA 4.25
1.41 WHIP 1.20
2.14 SO/W Ratio 3.08

A career .500 pitcher (84-86), Phillies right-hander Kyle Gibson is 9-9 since coming to Philadelphia last season from the Texas Rangers. His current strikeouts/walks ratio of 3.08 would be a career high if Gibson maintains that pace through the end of the season.

Gibson is 1-0 with a 0.69 ERA over his last two starts, allowing six hits and striking out 10 over 13 innings of work. He’s lost just one of his past 10 starts.

He’s faced the Cubs twice and is 0-2 with a 5.40 ERA. However, Gibson’s strikeouts/walks ratio of 4.33 against Chicago is his best number against any MLB team.
