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

Chicago Cubs

Hey – look at that! The Cubs have a chance to beat the Reds in a series! How cool!

Yu Darvish will be on the mound this afternoon, coming off his best start as a Chicago Cub. He won’t have Willson Contreras or Kyle Schwarber’s bats in the lineup, but he will have a familiar face behind the plate in Victor Caratini, who’s developed a nice rapport with the Cubs righty. The Cubs have an off-day tomorrow, so winning this early game today can go a long way towards improving your mood for the next, oh, 48 hours or so.
