Pre-Gamin’: Dodgers at Cubs (6:08 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

The Chicago Cubs (9-17) are one of just four teams who’ve yet to reach the double-digit win threshold yet this season (Tigers, Royals, Reds). And they’ve got a tough task on tap tonight with Walker Buehler on the mound for the Dodgers at Wrigley Field (and no Marcus Stroman to counter, as planned).

Worse, this game is on ESPN Sunday Night baseball, which means we’re in store for at least one mention of Steve Bartman and also how the Cubs weren’t able to keep the core together after their World Series run. I’m really looking forward to it. Go Cubs.
