Pre-Gamin’: Cubs at Cardinals (7:15 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread


Something enormous and life-changing is happening tonight … the Cubs are playing the Cardinals again!

Ah, I kid, I kid. Michael is getting married (right now! as this publishes!), so hopefully he remembers all the words, and the Cubs also treat him and his bride to a win tonight.

Kyle Hendricks looks to keep the ball in the ballpark tonight – something he’s struggled with this year – while Carlos Martinez will look to keep the Cubs off the bases via the free pass. He’s really struggled with walks this year, and isn’t netting strikeouts at the rate he normally does. That said, teams really aren’t squaring him up much either, so it sounds like patience will be in order.
