Even though Quintana has a mediocre 4.22 ERA on the season, he has been much better recently. He’s posted a 3.00 ERA over his last seven games, and the Cubs have won five of those contests. On the season, he has a 3.40 ERA on the road with a 1.37 WHIP. That’s much better than his stats at home, where he has a 5.50 ERA and 1.47 WHIP.
The Giants will hand the ball to Cueto, who just returned from a sprained elbow that sidelined him since April 30. He was knocked around in his first start back on Thursday, giving up 10 hits and five earned runs in just 5.0 innings of work. On the season, he still has a sparkling 1.95 ERA, so we’ll see if he can get back on track on Tuesday.
The two teams have already played a three-game set this season in Chicago. The Cubs took two of three in that series, scoring 18 runs in the process.
