The Chicago Cubs have hit a bit of an offensive slump, but they’ve managed to preserve their National League Central lead.

The Cubs hope to get the bats going and add to their cushion in the division when they wrap up a four-game road series against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Thursday.

Chicago has scored only five runs in its past four contests, but the Cubs snapped a three-game skid with a 1-0 win Wednesday. Despite the losing streak, the Cubs have maintained a four-game lead over the St. Louis Cardinals.

Chicago has six games remaining against the Brewers and seven against the Cardinals after wrapping up the season series against Pittsburgh.

Cubs LH Jon Lester (9-7, 4.46 ERA) Lester wasn’t at his sharpest in his return from the disabled list Friday, but he still earned the win against Atlanta. The 33-year-old allowed four runs and eight hits over five innings in his first start since Aug. 17.

Pirates RH Jameson Taillon (7-5, 4.50) Taillon has not received a decision in his last four starts.
