7/10 Probable pitchers
Looking ahead to the Cubs’ post-All-Star break series against the Phillies, which begins Thursday at Wrigley Field, the rotation will be Ryan Dempster, Ted Lilly, Randy Wells, Tom Gorzelanny and Carlos Silva. The Cubs wanted to split the two left-handers, Lilly and Gorzelanny, and were able to do that. But they also want to give Silva as much time as possible. He is expected to make his start Sunday against the Dodgers and would not pitch again until July 19.
