Pre-Gamin’: Nationals at Cubs (6:40 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

Tonight, Jon Lester and Kyle Schwarber are going to re-take the field on the north side of Chicago for the first time since switching uniforms. There’ll be ovations and applause and perhaps even some tears of happiness … but I hope Schwarber goes 0-4 with 4 strikeouts and Lester lasts 2.0 innings before getting rocked out of the game.


Welcome home, friends. Go Cubs.
