Game Preview

Marcus Stroman has been a consistent bright spot amid an often-frustrating season for the Chicago Cubs.

Looking to record a personal-best sixth straight winning start, Stroman will attempt to help the host Cubs complete a three-game series sweep of the National League Central-leading Pittsburgh Pirates on Thursday night.

Although the Cubs sit seven games below .500, Stroman (7-4, 2.42 ERA) could earn a second All-Star Game nod. The right-hander leads the majors with 12 quality starts on the year. During his winning streak, he has a 1.26 ERA while holding opponents to a .150 batting average.
