Pre-Gamin’: Cubs at Pirates (3:05 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Pre-Gamin'

Happy Fourth of July … to the second-place Chicago Cubs.

As you all well know, the Cubs are a full game back in the NL Central and have lost 7 of their past 10 games, including three straight against these very Pirates. If they don’t win today, the Cubs and Pirates will have the same number of losses on the season..

But the American revolutionaries faced tougher odds than that 200+ years ago, right? And we’re not gonna let thEM DOWN ON THE BIGGEST AMERICAN HOLIDAY OF THE YEAR, RIGHT?!

AND WE’RE GONNA FIGHT UNTIL THERE’S NO FIGHT LEFT IN US, RIGHT?!

THAN GET OUT THERE AND KICK SOME PIRATE BUTT.
