Pre-Split-Squad-Gamin’: Cubs at Mariners (8:40 CT), Rockies at Cubs (9:05 CT)

Chicago Cubs

Tonight, half of the Chicago Cubs are heading to Peoria Stadium to take on the Seattle Mariners at 8:40 PM CT. Eddie Butler will get the ball for Chicago, and King Felix will take the mound for the Mariners.

And then, a half-hour later, the other half of the Cubs will host the Rockies at Sloan Park in Mesa. Mike Montgomery is starting that one for Chicago, and Jon Gray is starting for Colorado.

Game one will be available on MLB.TV (Mariners’ stream) and on the radio at 710 ESPN and Game two will be televised 0n NBC Sports Chicago and also on MLB.TV. You can also catch the audio at 670 The Score.
