At the top of the fourth, the Braves are at bat, the score 0-0. The Braves are taking on the Cubs tonight at Wrigley Field.
Pitching tonight for the Braves we have right-hander, Randall Delgado 2-3, 5.14 ERA.
“Delgado bounced back from two rough outings with career-best eight innings against the Phillies on Thursday. The 22-year-old pitcher had not completed more than six innings in 11 previous career starts.”
“I’m proud of him,” catcher David Ross said. “He pounded the strike zone and got ahead of the hitters, which he has had trouble doing at times.
Pitching for the Cubs we have Ryan DempsteHP0-1, 0.95 ERA.
“Dempster leads the Majors with a 0.95 ERA, yet does not have a win in four starts. Actually, he doesn’t have a victory since Aug. 11, a span of 13 starts. He threw eight scoreless innings vs. the Reds in his last game but did not get a decision.”
The Braves are 18-12, and Cubs are 12-17 for the season. The match up of the pitchers is going to be an intriguing matchup. We have a newbie against an oldie. Right now Delgado has had 64 pitches with 39 strikes and 25 balls.
Enjoy watching the rest of the game!!
