There will be day baseball and it gets going at 2:20PM Eastern Time on MLB Network as the Chicago Cubs host the St Louis Cardinals. Starting for the Cubs will be lefty Jon Lester and will host Cardinals righthander Jack Flaherty. St Louis has had success against the Cubs this season winning five of their eight meetings as this series opened on Thursday. After a good start to the season, Cardinals starter Jack Flaherty has struggled. St Louis is 0-5 in his past five starts. Part of the issue has been run support as the Cardinals have scored two runs or fewer in four of those starts. Flaherty has not gone deep in games pitching five innings or fewer in three of those starts. Jon Lester has been solid at Wrigley Field with a 5-1 record and ERA of 1.98. Cubs have given Lester strong run support. Team is 9-0 in his past nine starts. Still Lester has allowed two earned runs or fewer in six of those starts. Control has been an issue of late for the Chicago lefthander as he has walked 14 batters in his past 28 2/3rd innings of work.

The battle of New York begins at 7PM Eastern Time on MLB Network as the New York Yankees are home to the New York Mets. It will be Domingo German starting for the Yankees to battle Mets righty Noah Syndergaard. Yankees have played well in their home stadium with a 33-13 mark. Mets have been 20-23 on the road. New York Mets hit the break splitting a four game series at home to the Washington Nationals. Yankees split four games at Cleveland and Baltimore at the end of the weekend. Syndergaard returned from a six week stint on the DL by limiting the Nationals to one run in five innings. But he allowed nine baserunners with two walks and seven hits as Syndergaard was in jams in that short outing. German has been inconsistent mixing in good and bad starts. His last start was bad as the righthander allowed six runs in four innings in defeat at Cleveland.
