Pre-Gamin’: Rockies at Cubs (7:05 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Pre-Gamin'

Tonight, Yu Darvish will take the mound for the Chicago Cubs, coming off one of the best starts of his Cubs career. However, he’ll do it with Willson Contreras behind the plate, instead of Victor Caratini (or Taylor Davis) like he has in many of his previous starts this season.

I’m very much hoping for another excellent outing, not only for the added mark in the win column, but to ensure that Darvish doesn’t need a personal catcher to succeed. To be fair to him, it’s not as much needing a personal catcher as it is Contreras being a poor receiver/framer, but still … all things equal, you’d prefer the Cubs able to play the matchups.

German Marquez is starting opposite Darvish and he’s been very good once again this season. The offense has looked sharp lately, but this won’t be an easy matchup. Let’s hope Darvish can go deep and keep the Cubs in the game for as long as possible. Go Cubs.
