Pre-Gamin’: Cubs at Pirates (5:35 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

With a win, the Cubs can give the Pirates their 100th loss tonight. With a loss, the Cubs secure the 7th overall pick in the draft. Call it a win-win.

Justin Steele is making his final start of the 2021 season. The starting experiment didn’t go perfectly for Steele this year, he dealt with some serious third-time through issues, but in one way or another, he’s likely to be a big part of the Cubs next year. Hopefully, he can end the season on a high note, file some stuff away to work on in the offseason, and come back better for the experience next year.

Go Cubs.
