wrigley field from right bleachersToday’s game is an opportunity for the Cubs to bounce back from last night’s ugly loss, and to still take this series against the first place Diamondbacks. Edwin Jackson will look to have the kind of start it looked like he was going to have against the White Sox last week when he was rained out, unfortunately.
