Pre-Gamin’: Giants at Cubs (1:20 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

All things considered, Justin Steele’s last two starts were pretty good. He went 5.0 scoreless innings against the Twins in Minnesota two games ago and 5.0 better-than-the-line-suggests innings against the Reds at Wrigley Field his last time out. Steele still needs to figure out how to get over that 70-pitch/third-time-through-the-order hump, but that’s all part of the process. For now, I’ll be happy with baby steps.

Note: The Giants (104 wRC+) have the 9th best offense against left-handed pitching in MLB this season and plenty to play for. This won’t be an easy matchup for Steele.

Note II: The Cubs are off tomorrow and don’t play again until Tuesday night … so get your fill of Cubs baseball now, because you’ll be without it for over 48 hours.
