Pre-Gamin’: Brewers v. Cubs (1:20 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

wrigley outfieldYesterday’s game is but a distant memory, right?

All that matters today is that the Cubs have a chance to win this series, which is a good thing, regardless of the opponent. Jason Hammel is coming off of one of the best starts by any Cubs pitcher this year, and hopefully he keeps the ball down on what might be a warm, breezy day.

Jorge Soler is back in the two-hole after his one-day mind-trip as the leadoff man.
