A chance to win the series behind Jon Lester.

Two of the Cubs’ best prospects being showcased in an All-Star game of sorts.
Kazmir has made sense as a rental for the Cubs for a while. This just adds a little to that discussion.
Maddon said it might have been the worst non-overturn he’s seen this year.
The lefty’s status for Saturday is still up in the air, so the Cubs might have to figure out a fill-in option.
The Cubs hung around in this one, but couldn’t quite get all the way back in it.
Kyle Hendricks has a chance to help the Cubs lock up this series against the Dodgers.
Turner was pitching well at AA Tennessee. Now, it’s unclear when he’ll be back.
Are the Cubs going to pick up a pitcher sooner rather than later? Are the recent Hamels/Rangers rumors going anywhere? Are the Reds selling?
It was a pitch that’s really hard to take out of the park, too. And he sent it a long, long way.
The North Florida outfielder was one of the best college bats in the draft, and I suspect the Cubs were very happy he slipped to them in the second round.
There’s still a long road ahead to get back after his broken finger, but progress is progress.
Was he a decoy? How’s his ankle? Why didn’t he bunt? Also: more discussion on multi-inning relievers for the Cubs.
The Cubs on The Score would seem to be a pretty perfect fit.
A walk-off sac fly might not seem exciting, but it was actually rather hard for Denorfia to pull off in that situation.
More extra-innings? More one-run games? No problem: more walk-offs!
Impressive catch? Terrible idea? Both?
Here’s hoping the Cubs can get to Zack Greinke early, and that Jason Hammel is ready to go deep.
