The Chicago Cubs (22-21) will play against the San Fransisco Giants (20-27) at 6:05 p.m. CDT on Tuesday night televised on CSN Chicago and ESPN.

Veteran lefty Jon Lester will take the mound for the defending World Champions opposed by starter Johnny Cueto. The Reds starter has been tough against the Cubs with a 9-8, 3.24 ERA in his career.

Cubs rookie Ian Happ and slugger Kyle Schwarber are both in the starting lineup for today's action after not starting on Monday. One interesting tidbit is that second baseman Ben Zobrist has reached safely in 20 straight games dating back to April 38, third longest streak in the major leagues.

The Cubs are currently in third place (2.5 games back) in the National League Central behind the Brewers and Cardinals.
