Pre-Gamin’: Cubs at Dodgers (3:10 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

If they gave out awards for almost winning games, the Cubs would be right up there with the best. Or worst. However that makes sense.

Alas. By a margin of 13-8, the Cubs have dropped the first three games of this series in Los Angeles. That means the Dodgers are going for the four-game sweep this afternoon, doing so against a pitcher, Drew Smyly, returning from a lengthy stint on the IL.

And to make mattes worse, the Cubs are facing a lefty, Julio Urias, who’s been outstanding this season: 2.57 ERA over 16 starts with a 6% walk rate and very little hard contact.

The Cubs need everything to be perfect today to steal this sweep away from the Dodgers.
