Pre-Gamin’: Cubs at Padres (8:40 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

Get your coffee poured now, because we’ve got a late one on tap tonight.

MacKenzie Gore and the Padres are hosting Kyle Hendricks and the Cubs for their first of two 8:40pm (CT) games in San Diego, followed by a 3:10pm CT game on Wednesday.

Gore has been very good for the Padres this year, as we discussed earlier today, and Hendricks has been wildly inconsistent with two good starts and four pretty horrible ones so far. He’s allowed 10 earned runs and 5 homers over his last two games alone. Gore, meanwhile, hasn’t allowed a homer since his first start of the season and has allowed only 4ER total all year (four starts, 21.0 IP).

Good luck, Cubs. You (probably) can’t lose them all, right?
