Arizona is 25-51 in their last 76 Sunday games and 22-63 in their last 85 road games. The over is 9-1-1 in Arizona’s last 11 road games. Chicago is 9-20 in their last 29 games and 2-7 in their last 9 game four’s of a series. The under is 4-0-1 in Chicago’s last 5 Sunday games. The under is 6-2 in these two teams last 8 head to head meetings.

Arizona has won the first three games of this series and are going for the sweep with Kelly on the mound. The Cubs are answering with Miley, who is coming off of an outing where he allowed 0 runs and 1 hit over 7 innings pitched. This game is a toss up and I think runs will be at a premium, but I think Wade Miley gives the Cubs a small edge in this matchup.
