Thanks, Wrigley Field, for your crazy insistence on afternoon games all the time. Today’s contest between the (very, very slowly) ascending Kansas City Royals and the (quickly) descending Chicago Cubs will be an interleague matchup in Chicago. The Royals will send Brad Keller to the mound and hope that he improves from generally being bad this whole year, though he’s had spurts of effectiveness lately.
No DH today, obviously, and no Hunter Dozier either, who is feeling ill. Without further ado, because you’re all opening this up at work and are just looking for the lineups:
