Once upon a time, this pitching matchup might have been attractive enough to get ESPN interested in a game that didn't involve their pet Yankees or Red Sox.
Instead, it's just another ballgame. Merry Solstice.
|Today's Starting Pitchers|
Sabathia got pummeled on Opening Day vs. the White Sox and then went on the DL and missed a month. He came back, won five of six, but has now lost three in a row and given up a ton of runs in two of those.
Again, neither pitcher has faced many hitters from the opponent tonight, fairly typical for an interleague game. It won't mean much, but the Cubs do have a chance to win another series.
Discuss amongst yourselves.
