#Cubs and Hammel face Braves
Jason Hammel gets the start Thursday night at Wrigley Field when the Cubs play the Braves in a makeup game. When this game was originally scheduled to be played on April 30, the Braves were still managed by Fredi Gonzalez and the Cubs were 17-5 and had yet to lose back to back games.
Fast forward to now and the Cubs have lost six of their last seven games. They’ve been outscored by a 50-29 margin in that span, and the pitching staff has posted a combined 7.17 ERA.
The Cubs also have lost 12 of 17 since Dexter Fowler went on the DL with a strained right hamstring.
Here’s Thursday’s lineup:
