By now, we all know that Chris Volstad is having a horrible season. In fact, it goes back over a calendar year that he hasn’t won a game. It’s to the point where I just feel bad for the guy, and he only has four more winless starts to go before he ties the MLB record at 28. I’d prefer he not go down in infamy as a Cub.
The aforementioned Volstad (0-9, 6.88) will take the mound against Jhoulys Chacin (1-3, 6.16) of the Rockies. Chacin made his first start since May 1 last Tuesday, allowing one run on four hits in six innings against the Mets. He only struck out two, so look for the Cubs to strike out 12 times against him.
All you Luis Valbuena fans are going to be so excited about the lineup today. Check it out after the jump.
Game time is 1:20 Central and you’ll be able to watch on WGN if you have the intestinal fortitude.
