9/19 Cubs vs. Braves

The Cubs return home Friday for the final homestand of the season, playing host to the NL East leading Braves. Atlanta’s magic number is two, and they are off on Thursday. Former Cubs pitcher Paul Maholm gets the start Friday against Scott Baker, who will be making his final start for the Cubs for the season. Baker, coming back from Tommy John surgery, will then have to make a decision about next season. Here are the pitching matchups:

Friday, 1:20 p.m. CT: RHP Scott Baker (0-0, 0.82) vs. LHP Paul Maholm (10-10, 4.35)
