Cubs lineup vs. Cardinals, Hendricks starting

by - Senior Editor -

The Chicago Cubs (81-66) will battle their rival St. Louis Cardinals at 3:05 p.m. CDT on Saturday afternoon televised on CSN+. The Cubs are in sole possession of first place ahead of the Brewers by three games in the National League Central division.

The North Siders are currently 6-4 in their last ten games as the Cardinals, and the Brewers are right in the thick of things in the divisional race.

Righty Kyle Hendricks will start for the defending World Champions opposed by righty Michael Wacha.

In 2017, Hendricks has 6-5 record with an impressive 3.35 ERA with 103 strikeouts. In his last ten starts, he is 2-2 with a sparkling 2.58 ERA.

Both starting outfielders Kyle Schwarber and Jason Heyward will come off the bench for the North Siders today.
