Pre-Gamin’: Phillies at Cubs (6:40 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

Hayden Wesneski is back on the mound tonight in what will be his biggest challenge of the season. Not only is he squaring up against a formidable starter in Aaron Nola, the Phillies are by far his toughest opponent yet.

Here’s a brief look back at his short stint in the big leagues so far.

vsCIN: 5.0 IP, 2H, 0ER, 1BB, 8K
vsSFG: 3.2 IP, 4H, 3ER, 1BB, 3K
vsCOL: 7.0 IP, 3H, 1ER, 0BB, 7K
@PIT: 6.1 IP, 5H, 2ER, 2BB, 6K

This will be Wesneski’s third official start of the year (he appeared in relief against the Reds and Giants).

Aaron Nola has struck out 16 batters over his last 13.0 IP, and currently ranks fifth in strikeouts for the season (218) – right between Dylan Cease and Robbie Ray. Like I said, this is going to be a tough one for Wesneski and the Cubs.
