In 1992 Bill Clinton was about to take his first term as President. Michael Jordan and the Bulls were in the middle of their first three-peat. Justin Bieber was still two years from being born. And 1992 was also the last time the Pittsburgh Pirates finished the season with a winning record. One team that has a hard time believing that is the Chicago Cubs. Since September of 2009 the Pirates are 16-6 against the Cubs.
The Cubs (22-28) will look to avoid the sweep Sunday with Ryan Dempster taking the hill. The Cubs number one starter has looked like anything but an ace this season. Dempster is 3-4 with an ERA of 6.29. The righty is coming off a great start. The Cubs will need him to carry the momentum from his last start to save face in the series finale.
Starting for the Pirates (24-26) Sunday will be Jeff Karstens. Karstens is 3-3 this season with an ERA of 3.57.
The first pitch is scheduled for 1:20 CST. The game can be seen on WGN. Weather forecast at the time of first pitch is cloudy with temps in the low 70's.
