Pre-Gamin’: Cubs at Mariners (5:40 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

The Chicago Cubs have guaranteed themselves at least a series split against the Mariners with their late-night victory last night, but have a chance at the two-game sweep later this afternoon.

Thankfully, this game is going to start a lot earlier than that one (5:40 CT) and the Cubs have Jon Lester on the mound, who’s been getting the results again this season despite not exactly having the peripherals to back it all up. It’s worth pointing out that the Mariners have a 144 wRC+ against left-handed pitching this season, which is second best in baseball.

Go Cubs.
