Game Post 9/5
today at 3:53 pm
Series preview is here.
Saturday: 4:15 PM CT on MLB Network/Marquee/670AM (Doubleheader)
Update: The Cubs dropped game one to Adam Wainwright and the Cardinals 4-2. Coming up empty with the bases loaded and nobody out in the 2nd was the big moment. Alzolay struggled a bit with control and the defense was sloppy.
The second game is a battle of the bullpens and the Cubs are the road team. Collin Rea is the Cubs so-called opener, while the Cards are going with lefty Austin Gomber. Chicago is giving Anthony Rizzo, Kris Bryant, and Willson Contreras game two off.
The Cubs also DFA’ed Steven Souza Jr. between games, harsh but fair.
Cubs have recalled RHP Tyson Miller. He will be available for Game 2.
OF Steven Souza Jr. has been designated for assignment.
