Pre-Gamin’: Cardinals at Cubs (6:05 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

The Cubs and Cardinals are on ESPN this evening for a little Sunday Night Baseball, and I’m sure ESPN is thrilled with how big this game has become. After all, if the Cubs win, it’ll complete a three-game sweep of the Cardinals and push the Cubs into first place in the division. That’s a marquee matchup/set of outcomes for a game in early May.

As for specifics, the Cubs are throwing Jose Quintana at the Cardinals tonight, and he’s been pretty hot lately. Sure, he was bounced an out short of six innings his last time out, but Quintana was actually pitching pretty well during that game – and that followed a stretch of three straight starts of at least 7.0 IP (and just a total of 2 earned runs across all three). For the season, he’s got 38 strikeouts against just 9 walks, plus a 3.48 ERA.

With all of that said, the Cardinals have actually been the sixth best offense against left-handed pitching this season, so he’ll have his work cut out for him.
