Pre-Gamin’: Cubs at Cardinals (7:15 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

Cory Abbott is starting for the Cubs tonight, in what will be the first big league start of his career. He did make six appearances with the Cubs earlier this season, almost all of which were for multiple innings, but this will be his first true start.

Abbott, 26, is likely going to be starting depth for the Cubs again next season, and I’d love if he’d finish the year on a high note.
