Pre-Gamin’: White Sox at Cubs (7:15 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

With Kyle Hendricks, a righty, on the mound tonight, I like the Cubs chances a lot better against this potent (particularly against lefties) White Sox lineup. Meanwhile, with Reynaldo Lopez, another righty, making his return from the IL, I like the Cubs chances of scoring more than a single run.

HOWEVA …

The Cubs are still playing without Kris Bryant and, as we discussed in the lineup post, Gio Gonzalez is expected to enter the game early in relief of Lopez. The Cubs struggled against Gonzalez when he was with the Brewers quite a bit last season, so I’m not itching to see that matchup. Gotta win tonight to win the series.

Go Cubs.
