Indians look to get on winning track vs. Cubs

CLEVELAND -- The Chicago Cubs' first trip back to Progressive Field, where the Cubs won Game 7 of the 2016 World Series, will conclude Wednesday night, with the final game of a brief two-game interleague series with the Cleveland Indians.

The Cubs belted four home runs and won the first game 10-3 on Tuesday, snapping the Indians' three-game winning streak. The victory extended a hot streak by Chicago's hitters. The Cubs have won four of their last five games, and in those four wins they have outscored their opponents 43-20.

The pitching matchup for Wednesday night will be Cubs left-hander Jon Lester (2-0, 3.10 ERA) vs. Indians right-hander Trevor Bauer (1-2, 2.67). Lester is coming off an outstanding performance in his last start, an 8-5 win over St. Louis on April 19. In that game, Lester pitched six innings, allowing no earned runs, two hits, with seven strikeouts and one walk.
