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

Chicago Cubs

Kyle Hendricks and the Cubs take on Joe Musgrove and the Pirates tonight at 6:05. If this were a regular season or regular team, I’d point out that the Pirates have dropped 8 of their past 10 games and are 20 games below .500. But this is a road series against a division rival for the 2019 Chicago Cubs, so … you know. Let’s hope they can win one this weekend. Sigh.

Go Cubs.
