The Cubs trail Minnesota early in the second game of an ESPN Sunday Night Baseball doubleheader at home.
It is their last game at Wrigley Field until the first round of the playoffs, when they will almost certainly host a lower-seeded opponent.
Jon Lester went after Yu Darvish, who started Sunday night vs. Minnesota, the last time. If he does this time, it will be his eleventh start of the season.
He’s giving up more than a hit per inning but not much more with nearly three times as many strikeouts than walks. By and large, he’s been right around the league’s average this season.
Lester has faced the Pirates twice and done well once and not well the other time (he didn’t get a decision in either game).
But Lester is just the speculated starter. Pittsburgh has already announced JT Brubaker.
Brubaker has gradually gone deeper into each one of his starts since his August 6 debut.
He started out with three innings, then four, then five. He’s gone into the sixth in each of his last two starts.
Two-and-a-half weeks ago he threw five innings against the Cubs, allowing one earned run and striking out five.
