The Cubs are 6-1 in their last 7 after allowing 5 runs or more in their previous game and are 6-1 in their last 7 when their opponent scores 5 runs or more in their previous game. The Cubs are also 6-1 in their last 7 games following a loss and are 9-2 in their last 11 vs. American League East. The Rays are 2-6 in their last 8 games on grass and are 2-6 in their last 8 vs. a team with a winning record. Suzuki and the Cubs should have a better performance this time around. I’ll back the Cubs here to take the lead in the series.
