Pre-Gamin’: Reds v. Cubs (6:15 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Pre-Gamin'

wrigley outfieldThe Cubs will look to rebound from yesterday’s extra-innings loss, with Kyle Hendricks on the mound and the Cubs facing Mike Leake for the third time this year.

A little change up in the lineup, with Chris Coghlan moving up to the two-spot (he’s been hitting the ball very well for a while now), and the boppers bumped down a spot each.

If you’re out in the right field bleachers, look for me in a light blue BN shirt, blue and red shorts, and blue and yellow shoes.

Because of the early game and the vagaries of visiting with folks after the game in Wrigleyville, the EBS may be later than usual after this one.

Game Info

Cincinnati Reds (28-32) at Chicago Cubs (32-27), 6:15 CT on FOX (but I think blacked out on MLB.tv).
