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

Chicago Cubs

The Chicago Cubs have beaten the Indians in all three matchups so far this year, which means they’ve got a chance at the season-sweep tonight. That said, they do have a touch matchup in Aaron Civale, whom we discussed in greater detail earlier, but they’ve got Jon Lester on the mound coming off his best start in quite some time.

Frankly, given where the division is and the nature of the no-off-day postseason, I’m rooting MORE for a great Jon Lester outing than I am a Cubs win. It just seems more important at this point, but I’ll take what I can get.

Go Cubs.
