Tonight is the first official Cubs Social Media night, where the Cubs are actively courting twitter nerds. They’re having a fancy panel at the Captain Morgan Club, and get to hobnob in the right field bleachers, trying to out-tweet each other while enjoying their free t-shirts, baseball cards and one hot dog. Make sure to follow Julie (@JulieDiCaro), as she’ll be keeping us abreast of any and all advancements on and off field tonight.
As for the on-field action, the Phillies limp into Chicago tonight. Vance Worley was supposed to start for the Phils, but due to elbow soreness, he’ll be replaced by Kyle Kendrick (0-3, 7.32). On the mound for the Cubs is Matt Garza (2-1, 2.56). Garza struggled through 5 innings in his last start, which was his first since his courageous battle against the flu. Hopefully he’ll have his rhythm back tonight and mow through the Phillies.
