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

Chicago Cubs

The Cubs have just seven games left this season, with four more against the Cardinals, including one this afternoon. Keegan Thompson is on the mound for Chicago looking to make at least one good start before the year is up to show that he could actually be an option for the rotation next season.

Unfortunately, his first four starts not gone extremely not well and are always filled with these long, laborious early innings that shorten the effort altogether.

vsKCR: 4.0 IP, 5H, 2ER, 2BB, 1K
@CHW: 2.0 IP, 5H, 5ER, 2BB, 1K
vsPIT: 1.2 IP, 4H, 3ER, 2BB, 3Ks
@MIL: 2.0 IP, 1H, 0ER, 2BB, 0K

If you’re keeping score at home, that’s 9.2 IP, 15H, 10 ER, 8BB, and just 5 strikeouts over his first four starts.
