Pre-NLWC-Game-2: Marlins at Cubs (1:08 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

There are worse elimination games to face than a home game with your veteran ace on the mound against a rookie with 7 Major League starts who plays for a team that – frankly – is not all that impressive. But I guess that would also make losing pretty awful … Whatever. Embrace it. This might be the last time you see some of these players in a Cubs uniform.

Both teams are sticking with the same starting pitcher and same lineup, by the way, and both teams had a day to rest their relievers. The Marlins probably benefit a bit more in that department, considering whom they used on Wednesday, but it won’t matter if Yu Darvish throws a complete game shutout, right?


Go Cubs.
