wrigley outfieldThe Cubs have won 11 of 12, including 5 in a row, and they face former friend Matt Garza tonight.

Jason Hammel takes the mound, and, although his performances have been uneven since he hurt his hamstring just before the All-Star break, he gets to throw to Miguel Montero for the first time in a while. Perhaps that’ll help get him back on track.

The Cubs’ lineup is the same as the one the day before, which was the same as the one the day before, which was the same …

It’s working.
