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

Chicago Cubs

Big news day around these parts. Ian Happ is day-to-day, but theoretically available off the bench. Adbert Alzolay is getting his second start of the season tomorrow in Game 1 of the double-header, followed by a bullpen game, and Pedro Strop is BACK WITH THE CUBS! 

But beyond all of that, Yu Darvish will square off against Jack Flaherty tonight, in a game that the Cubs *really* want to win. Not only is getting at least 3 Ws this weekend an important target for their season aspirations, but a long outing from Darvish tonight could take a lot of pressure off Alzolay and the bullpen tomorrow. The fewer relievers used tonight the better.

Let’s go Cubs.
