Cubs are 5-1 in their last 6 interleague road games. Cubs are 0-4 in their last 4 after scoring 2 runs or less in their previous game. Cubs are 0-4 in Stroman’s last 4 starts.
Shane’s Free Pick
The Cubs have lost the last four starts by Stroman and it’s going to be no different in this game. Louie Varland was strong in this last start, and the Cubs are going to really struggle to get any type of offense going here. It might not be the prettiest game, but the Twins will get the job done. The under is also going to cash here.
