Pre-Gamin’: Cardinals at Cubs (4:15 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

We’ve seen a lot of weird stuff this season, from fan-less baseball, to three-batter minimums, to universal designated hitters, to runners starting on second base in extra innings, but today we’re going to see another new thing: 7.0 inning double-headers.

Kyle Hendricks gets the ball in Game 1 and if he can find a way to throw all 7.0 innings tonight, he will disproportionately help the Cubs chances in the second game.

Also, let’s end this losing streak, eh?
