It’s raining so hard that coach Mike Borzello stopped his daily run. But indications are that Braves-Cubs will play as scheduled tonight pic.twitter.com/tPY981qAzL— Mark Gonzales (@MDGonzales) June 24, 2019
Lester batting ninth tonight. First two AB’s yesterday for Hamels, in the 8-hole, came with runners on and two outs. Perhaps it swayed Maddon the other way?— Jesse Rogers (@ESPNChiCubs) June 24, 2019
The MLB season is roughly half finished, yet only five teams are within 5.5 games of first place in their division --and four play in the NL Central. Crazy.— Josh Frydman (@Josh_Frydman) June 24, 2019
Another example of @ARizzo44 giving back to our community. Tonight he is hosting 150 kids from Lurie Children’s Hospital for a pre game party and amazing seats for tonight’s Braves vs Cubs game. @Cubs pic.twitter.com/LVhCgvDKNN— David Kaplan (@thekapman) June 24, 2019
