Pre-Gamin’: Diamondbacks at Cubs (1:20 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

Early this afternoon, the Chicago Cubs will host the Arizona Diamondbacks at Wrigley Field. The Cubs are riding a three-game winning streak – largely on the strength of their starting pitching – but are handing the ball to Kyle Hendricks, who hasn’t quite got going just yet.

From a matchup, standpoint, though, he could do a lot worse than Arizona, whose 96 wRC+ against righties is below average and ranks 19th in MLB.

With one more win, the Cubs would be back up to .500 for the first time since the second game of the season. I would like that. Give me what I like, Cubs.
