wrigley field from right bleachersI’m headed to Wrigley to take in the game today, so come say hello if you see me in the right field bleachers. I’ll be the one wearing a blue Bleacher Nation shirt because I can’t help myself.

The Stache will look to bounce back from his first non-quality start of the season, and the Cubs will try to play another close one with the Reds (and, like, win it).

Game Info

Cincinnati Reds (15-14) at Chicago Cubs (11-17), 1:20 CT on CSN.
