Pre-Gamin’: Giants at Cubs (3:05 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

Friday 1:20 >>>>>>>>

But the kids are back in school and today’s game starts at 3:05. Alas.

Carlos Rodon is having an absolutely brilliant season for the Giants, with a 2.92 ERA (2.81 xERA) over 27 starts and 157.1 innings pitched. His 31.7% strikeout rate isn’t quite as high as last season, but it’s still third highest in MLB, tucked between Gerrit Cole and Dylan Cease. The last time Rodon faced the Cubs, he struck out 10 over seven scoreless innings with just 2 hits scattered throughout. Oof.

Meanwhile, Drew Smyly is coming off his worst outing of the year, with 7 earned runs over 2.1 innings in St. Louis.
