wrigley field from right bleachersInterleague play is back! Wait. The schedule says it’s the Astros. And it’s at Wrigley. This isn’t going to feel like interleague play at all, is it?

I guess who cares, as long as the Cubs play well after an ugly series in St. Louis.

Matt Garza gets another patsy lineup (nice), and he gets Dioner Navarro behind the plate. Hopefully he dominates.

The game is currently under a delay.
