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

Chicago Cubs

I wasn’t able to catch most of the Cubs action this weekend, because I was at a bachelor party in Park City, Utah, but I’m making up for it by going to the game tonight – my first game back at Wrigley Field since 2019. I’m so unbelievably excited and even more happy I’ll get to see Adbert Alzolay pitch for the first time since coming off the IL.

I hope he picks up right where he left off, which, as we discussed earlier, was a very good place:

Adbert Alzolay Returns! Later tonight, the Cubs young starter, Alzolay, will make his first start since going on the IL with a blister issue earlier this month. He says it’s all cleared up now and I’m really excited to see him pitch. He remains a vital part of the success this season and in the near future. Alzolay had been on a nice run before the blister injury, with just 13 earned runs over 39.2 IP (2.95 ERA). Other highlights of that stretch: 26.3 K%, 3.8BB%, 47.6 GB%.

Go Cubs. And maybe I’ll see you there!
