The Chicago Cubs (59-53) will take on the San Francisco Giants on 2:45 PM CDT on Wednesday afternoon televised on CSN Chicago and MLB Network.

Righty pitcher Kyle Hendricks will start for the defending World Champions opposed by lefty standout Madison Bumgarner.

In 2017, Hendricks has a 4-4 record with 3.81 ERA with 64 strikeouts.

Willson Contreras was named National League Player of the Week on Monday afternoon and will be batting in the cleanup position again this afternoon.

Cubs teammates Anthony Rizzo and Jason Heyward are not in today's starting lineup as they are both getting the day off against the tough lefty. Today is the 28th birthday for Heyward.


The Cubs are currently in first place in the National League Central (1.5 games) ahead of the Brew Crew.
