6/9 Tough NL Central

The Cubs have just six wins against NL Central teams, the fewest for any team within its own division this year.

“The pitching is as good as I’ve seen in a long time,” Dale Sveum said. “It’s all about pitching. St. Louis has the elite offense, the way they hit with men in scoring position. It’s one of the elite divisions in baseball right now, mainly because of the pitching.”

The Cardinals, Pirates and Reds rank second, third and fourth in the NL in team ERA. The Braves are first; the Cubs are eighth.
