Pre-Gamin’: Cubs at Dodgers (9:10 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

When Alec Mills returned to the Cubs last month, Mark Leiter Jr. shifted back into his long/swing-man role in the bullpen. HOWEVA, Mills left his last start in the first inning with an injury, and that basically turned into a start for Leiter Jr.

And it was a good start, at that: 5. 1 IP, 3H, 1ER, 1BB, 5Ks … against the Red Sox!

He’ll have an even tougher matchup tonight against the Dodgers, but maybe he can help the Cubs eek through a first-half defined by the decimation of their starting rotation.

Leiter Jr. will be going up against Tony Gonsolin tonight, who’s been absolutely lights out in 15 starts: 1.54 ERA (2.81 xERA), .155 batting average against.

Good luck, Cubs. You’re gonna need it.
