Phillies-Cubs Preview

(AP) -- The Chicago Cubs and Philadelphia Phillies are miles apart in terms of offense, but are surprisingly only separated by five wins.

After recapturing their offensive mojo against their archrivals, the Cubs return home Friday to face a Phillies team coming off one of its highest-scoring games of the season.

Chicago (31-14) has ascended to the top of the NL Central thanks to a pitching staff sporting a major league-best 2.74 ERA coupled with an offense that averages 5.7 runs. The Cubs have plated 101 more runs than Philadelphia's 155 - the majors' second-worst mark - but the Phillies (26-21) aren't far off the pace in the NL East.
