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

Chicago Cubs

Although the fun was ultimately spoiled by an especially erratic bullpen, Jon Lester left his first start of the season with no hits allowed through the first five frames. Hopefully, then, he can follow suit with Tyler Chatwood, following up a brilliant 2020 debut with an even stronger second act.

David Bote is leading off today instead of Kris Bryant, who self reported some symptoms, and a few other regulars have the day off, as well. We talked about the lineup decisions, as well as Pirates starter Steven Brault, earlier today.

Go Cubs.
