Pre-Gamin’: Cubs at Diamondbacks (7:10 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

The Chicago Cubs are back at .500 after a couple of back-to-back losses, and they’re facing a former farmhand, Zack Godley, tonight.

Godley had a breakout season back in 2017 (25 starts, 3.37 ERA, 3.4 WAR), but wasn’t quite able to replicate the results last year (32 starts, 4.74 ERA, 2.5 WAR). The peripherals were still pretty good, but he was clearly missing something … and whatever it was has carried into this season.

Through his first five starts of 2019, Godley has a 6.67 ERA with a 5.18 FIP – he’s also walked 14(!) batters through his first 27.0 IP and has a strikeout rate well under 20%. In addition, lefties have hit Godley especially well, so let’s hope for big games out of that Heyward/Descalso/Schwarber trio, returning to the starting lineup after a break last night.

Yu Darvish is on the mound and the Cubs need this one to avoid their first series loss since the beginning of April. Go Cubs.
