Cubs over Pirates- Today, Chicago will start left-hander Justin Steele (2-5, 4.27 ERA) who is scheduled to oppose Pittsburgh left-hander Jose Quintana (1-4, 3.66 ERA). Steele is coming off something of a relief appearance and snapped a career-high five-game losing streak last time out. Steele hasn't really pitched poorly as he has a 1.89 ERA in three starts this month, and he has given up three runs or fewer in six of his past seven starts. Against the Pirates, Steele is 1-1 with a 2.25 ERA in three career games, two of them starts. He allowed three runs and four hits in three innings April 24. Quintana has stumbled some recently after he turned in a 2.00 ERA in May, giving up a total of 11 runs in his past three starts. Saturday, Quintana did not get a decision when he allowed three runs and five hits in 5 1/3 innings against the San Francisco Giants. He has dished up five homers over his past two starts. Quintana is 0-4 with a 3.47 ERA in six career starts against the Cubs, with one loss and one no-decision this season. Take the CUBS!
