Pre-Gamin’: Cubs at Pirates (5:35 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

It’s time for the Cubs to finally take care of business against the Pirates, and it all start tonight with Jake Arrieta on the mound in Pittsburgh. Arrieta has faced the Pirates twice already this season, including one start in Pittsburgh, and both games went very well.

04/03 v. PIT: 6.0 IP, 6H, 1ER, 1BB, 5Ks
04/08 @ PIT: 6.0 IP, 7H, 2ER, 3BB, 4K

If he comes anywhere close to that tonight – against a lineup that is missing a few key bats, no less – the Cubs should be just fine. And, hey, a win tonight would pull the Cubs up to three games over .500 for the first time this year. So let’s get it.
