Pre-Gamin’: Diamondbacks v. Cubs (12:05 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, etc.


I’m going to today’s game with some friends, so I hope yesterday’s massive rain delay was a one-time thing.

Once again, today could be Ryan Dempster’s last start at Wrigley Field.

Game Info

Arizona Diamondbacks (42-44) at Chicago Cubs (34-52), 12:05pm CT on WGN.
