Chicago Cubs (80-58) at Philadelphia Phillies (54-86)
PHI: Adam Morgan, LHP (5-5, 4.42)
CHI: Jake Arrieta, RHP (4-6, 5.65)
A Note for Today:
As we all were so excited to get our first look at Jake Arietta, the rain is bringing a dismal look to getting this game in tonight, and looking more like a day/night double header possibly tomorrow. Currently in delay, there looks to be a window later in the evening and that’s what they are aiming for.
The lineups have been released and all are simply waiting for the rain to subside.
Jake Arrieta is set to start versus Adam Morgan for the Phillies.
In other news, the Phillies organization has made their final decision this morning on GM Ruben Amaro Jr. and his tenure here in Philadelphia, which has come to a close, effective immediately. This is not news to much of the Phillies fan base, who have thought this was long overdue and soon to be coming as his contract expired at the end of the season.
Start time TBD.
Hernandez 2B, Galvis SS, Herrera CF, Francouer LF, Howard 1B, Altherr RF, Asche 3B, Ruiz C, Morgan LHP
