Game One Hundred Forty-Seven: Cubs (58-88) vs. Dodgers (77-68)
Game Time – 1:20pm C.T. WGN TV, WGN Radio, XM Radio Channel 188
Location – Wrigley Field, Chicago
Wade Miller (0-1, 12.00) vs. Hong-Chih Kuo (1-4, 4.46)
Today is the last Thursday game of the year for the Cubs and Wade Miller is scheduled to make his 2nd start of the season. Miller looked very awkward on the mound in his first start last Saturday in Atlanta and he credited his struggles with lack of pitching….it was his first start in over 2 weeks and his first start in the Majors since August 8th of last year. The Cubs need Miller to finish the season in the rotation so they can gauge whether or not he will fit into their plans for next season. A win today will give the Cubs their first series win in a month….it will be a tall task against the lefty Hong-Chih Kuo.
Derrek Lee should be back in the lineup but do not be surprised to see Dusty run out a bunch of lefties against Kuo….lefties are hitting .291 while righties are hitting just .188 this season.
