Wrigley Field in Chicago might be the most beautiful place on Earth for baseball fans and it is also the location for game 2 of the first round of playoffs between the Cubbies and Giants. Taking the mound for the Giants is the right-handed beast Jeff Samardzija who will be dueling with Kyle Hendricks who will be dealing for the Cubbies. These two guys are both hungry for the NL Pennant and will be gunning for no-hitters so be sure not to miss a single pitch in this match-up.WATCH THE GIANTS VS. CUBS ONLINE HERE.
Let’s take a closer look at the Giants ace, Jeff. He can get his four-seamer into the mid-90’s and has an ERA of about 3.81. His 2016 regular season record sits at 12-11 going into this game. Jeff has great movement on his slider and his splitter sits in the high 80’s. The guy can’t paint the corners well and has the potential to completely baffle opposing batters.
The Cubs have a stud in Kyle who can also push some four-seam heat. Kyle is a rightie with an ERA at 2.13 on a record of 16-8. Kyle’s curve dips into the 70’s with lots of action and his sinker touches the high 80’s puzzling sluggers. When Kyle gets in a zone he can quickly rack-up 1o K’s so good luck to the Giant’s line-up!
