Pre-Gamin’: Padres at Cubs (7:05 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

Don’t look now, but the Cubs have a chance at winning a series against the Padres tonight, and a pretty good one at that. Kyle Hendricks is taking the mound in Chicago, where he’s normally quite good (2.67 career ERA) coming off five straight solid starts.

Following a shaky start to the season, it finally feels like The Professor is back (immediate anti-jinx enforced, because the Padres are a really good team and even a really good, locked in pitcher could struggle against them). And Anthony Rizzo is finally back!

Meanwhile, the Cubs are currently at a season-high 7-games over .500. So a win tonight wouldn’t just keep them in first place and take the series from the Padres, but it would also bring them to new heights on the year. Pretty big one.
