Pre-Gamin’: Athletics at Cubs (7:05 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

The Cubs can take the series tonight – and they do have Jon Lester on the mound to try – but I’ll remind you that the A’s have been very good against left-handed pitching this season.

Plus, it would be so freakin’ 2019 if Brett Anderson found a way to dominate the Cubs at Wrigley Field. Let’s hope that doesn’t happen. Another episode of Outside the Ivy tonight after the post-game. Go Cubs.
