The Cubs tonight start a four-game set against the San Francisco Giants in a game that probably won’t end until after 1am ET. Is it safe to say that the Enhanced Box Score will be delayed a few hours? Yes. It is safe to say.

The Cubs will try to keep their winning streak going against a team not named the Padres (but a team that does have “San” in the name).

Tony Campana finally cracks back into the starting lineup, and it’s as the leadoff hitter. Unfortunately for him, it’s against a lefty. The rest of the Cubs’ lineup is about what we’ve come to expect against lefties, fear-inducing as it is.
