The Cubs' season, in sequence:

4/5-4/20: 3-11
4/21-5/14: 12-9
5/15-5/27: 0-12
5/28-5/30: 3-0
6/1-6/9: 1-8
6/10-6/18: 4-4

I'd say we're just about due for one of the down stretches. Facing Jake Peavy tonight won't help matters much, not to mention the fact that Travis Wood has made six starts and the Cubs have won zero of them.

Not too much more to say about this one. Onward.

Cubs lineup:

DeJesus CF, Castro SS, LaHair RF, Soriano DH, Clevenger 1B, Barney 2B, Valbuena 3B, Soto C, Campana LF

White Sox lineup:

De Aza CF, Beckham 2B, Dunn DH, Konerko 1B, Rios RF, Viciedo LF, Ramirez SS, Flowers C, Hudson 3B

Travis Wood has never faced the White Sox. The only active Sox player he's faced is Orlando Hudson (0-for-2). Now, usually when it's another pitcher facing the Cubs with this sort of record, I say, "Clearly, we are doomed", and usually, we are doomed. I'm not sure if this works the other way around, though. Somehow, I think not. Guess we'll find out tonight.

Jake Peavy is having an excellent season. He faced the Cubs May 20 at Wrigley and threw 6⅓ shutout innings in a game the White Sox won 6-0. The only Cub who's had any success against him is Alfonso Soriano (9-for-26, .346, four walks, three doubles, three home runs).

Today's game is on CSN Chicago. It's also on WGN with the White Sox announcers.
