Scouting Report on todays starters from MLB.com
Rich Hill – Hill is coming off a tough loss to the Mets. He gave up four runs on seven hits and four walks over six innings in the game, while striking out six. He hasn’t been as sharp in May, posting a 1-2 record and 5.29 ERA in three starts. In April, he was 3-1 with a 1.77 ERA in five games. The Cubs were working on his delivery in an effort to speed him up. Teams are running at will on the lefty, who is very deliberate.

Jake Peavy – Peavy saw his streak of four consecutive starts with 10 or more strikeouts end in a no-decision against the Reds on Wednesday. He struck out five in seven innings and recovered well after allowing two first-inning runs when his command wasn’t as sharp as it has been recently. Still, he kept the Padres close in a game they eventually won, 3-2, when Kevin Kouzmanoff walked with the bases loaded in the ninth inning.
