Pre-Gamin’: Giants v. Cubs (1:20 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, etc.

Chicago Cubs

The Cubs will try to take the series today, but they’ll have to beat Matt Cain to do it. Or, well, not beat Cain, but, like, not give up a ton of runs, and then beat the bullpen. But the first sentence is easier.

Game Info

San Francisco Giants (75-58) at Chicago Cubs (51-81), 1:20 CT on WGN.
