8/4 Cubs lineup
Logan Watkins was promoted from Triple-A Iowa and will start at second base in the Cubs’ finale vs. the Dodgers. Donnie Murphy also gets his first start at shortstop. Here’s the lineup:
* The Cubs need a win Sunday to prevent the Dodgers from netting their first series sweep of four or more games at Wrigley since taking a five-game set, July 14-18, 1988.
* The Cubs have played 38 one-run games, going 15-23, tied for third-most in the Majors (the Royals and Mets have played 39 one-run games apiece). The Cubs are 27-32 in games decided by two or fewer runs.
* With 26 victories on the road and 23 at Wrigley Field, the Cubs are one of three teams to sport more road wins than home wins this season.
