Pre-Gamin’: Astros v. Cubs (7:05 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, etc.


The final series has arrived, and it brings with it the worst team in baseball. The Astros, I mean.


The Cubs are hoping that they roll out the don’t-lose-100 red carpet.

(While simultaneously hoping that the Rockies win just one more game.)

Game Info

Houston Astros (53-106) at Chicago Cubs (60-99), 7:10 CT on WGN.
