Pre-Gamin’: Cubs at Phillies (6:05 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

Adrian Sampson is on the mound for the Cubs tonight, coming off a pretty solid start against the Reds in which he allowed just 2 runs to score over his 5.0 innings of work (not an easy feat against that offense). Sampson remains little more than a fill-in/swing member of this particular rotation without much long-term upside, but, hey … the dude’s got a 2.20 ERA over his 16.1 IP this season. Nevermind the 5.86 FIP.

Let’s see what he’s got tonight against the Phillies and the hottest hitter in MLB, Bryce Harper.
