Pre-Gamin’: Red Sox v. Cubs (6:15 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, etc.


It’s the second game of the Cubs/Sawx series, and the Cubs are already going for the series win. I guess that’s what happens when you win the first game of a series. No way they lose the next two, right? That never happens.

It’s another right-handed-heavy lineup for Dale Sveum today. At least Jeff Baker is 4 for 4 in his career off of Jon Lester.

Game Info

Boston Red Sox (31-33) at Chicago Cubs (22-42), 6:15pm CT on FOX.
