Location – Chase Field, Phoenix, AZ
Greg Maddux (5-0, 1.35) vs. Miguel Batista (2-1, 6.33)
Greg Maddux, the National League Pitcher of the Month for April, goes to the hill tonight against former Cub Miguel Batista (1997) and the Arizona Diamondbacks. Maddux is looking for a 6-0 start and career win number 324. Maddux has pitched better thus far in the season than anyone anticipated he would and he is arguably off to the best start of his Hall of Fame career. Maddux has been the rock the Cubs have leaned on the entire season and they look for Maddux to start this 9-game West Coast swing with a win against the D’backs.
Maddux should supply the Cubs with enough pitching to win, but the question remains….can the Cubs score enough run to get the “W”?
