#Cubs vs. White Sox, Game 2
It’ll be a match up of two talented left-handers on Saturday when the Cubs’ Jon Lester and the White Sox’s Chris Sale square off at Wrigley Field in the second game of their crosstown series. Lester has a 3.29 ERA (20 ER/54 2/3 IP) in his last nine starts since May 22, but does not have a win despite holding the opponent to two or fewer runs in six of those games. The Cubs have not scored while he’s been in the game in each of his last three starts, and in five of his last nine outings.
Here’s the lineup:
* Kris Bryant is batting .206 (14-for-68) with 22 strikeouts over his last 20 games. … Anthony Rizzo is batting .186 (8-for-43) with two extra-base hits (.279 SLG) over his last 13 games. … Starlin Castro is batting .143 (6-for-42) with two runs scored over his last 12 games.
