Advice for tickets: help please!

For any of you that frequent games or live in the area, would you please help me with a bit of advice? My 12 year old son is having a major surgery at the Children's hospital (Lurie) on Monday the 9th of June. My wife, son and I are driving in from Bloomington, IN on Thursday evening as we have to be in town on Friday the 6th for a clinical appointment before the scheduled surgery on Monday. We will be staying in the Ronald McDonald house for a month give or take beginning then. As we will be staying through the weekend, and, as he will be doing fine physically until Monday and is a huge Cubs fan like his old man and mother, we are looking to try and take in the game on Saturday the 7th or Sunday the 8th.

So what I am asking for is help with thinking through tickets. I am assuming that there are a large number of tickets available on the street before the game at pretty cheap (below face value?) prices. Am I correct in thinking so? Or do I need to go online and find something beforehand from someone?

Any advice from anyone? Or does anyone know someone that is looking to get rid of their tickets that Saturday or Sunday?

Thanks in advance for any input!
