The Cubs take the field today hoping to avoid their first four-game sweep at Wrigley by the Dodgers since 1988. Luis Valbuena went and strained his oblique yesterday and was put on the DL. The Cubs promoted prospect Logan Watkins from AAA Iowa, and he’ll start today at second base. Donnie Murphy, who joined the team yesterday after Julio Borbon was DFA’d will be also be starting today.
The starting pitchers are right-hander Steven Fife (3-3, 2.76) for the Dodgers and Carlos Villanueva (2-7, 4.33) for the Cubs.
Game time is 1:20 Central and you’ll be able to watch on WGN.
