Pre-Gamin’: Cubs at Indians (12:10 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

The Cubs are playing short-handed today, as evidenced by the four lefties in the lineup against a left-handed starter, Sam Hentges, and Matt Duffy in left field. But they’ll have to find a way to win if they want to split this series with the Indians.

Plus, with a loss on Sunday, an off-day on Monday, a loss yesterday, and an off-day tomorrow, the Cubs will go almost a WHOLE WEEK without a win if they lose today.

Fortunately, Zach Davies is coming off his best start of the year, and might actually be a perfect match to neutralize the Indians offense:
