Cubs Go For Two In A Row Against Mets

After a resounding 11-1 victory on Tuesday night, the Cubs will go for two in a row and a series victory over the New York Mets at Wrigley Field. Despite yet more injuries suffered during their last road trip, the Cubs managed to lean on their rookie bats to start an offensive deluge on Tuesday night, and now they hope that they can do the same on Wednesday against Dillon Gee.

Casey Coleman will make the start for the Cubs. Coleman has been up and down as a starter on the year for the Cubs. He's currently 2-3 with a 6.03 ERA and 1.89 WHIP, though coming off a start at Florida in which he pitched 5.2 innings of shutout baseball, and gave up just four hits while striking out seven. He's never pitched against the Mets.

The Mets will counter by sending Dillon Gee to the mound. Gee made a few starts early in the year, and then pitched out of the bullpen until once again being asked to start. In his most recent stint as a starter he's given up two, four, and zero earned runs, and on the season he's 3-0 with a 3.44 ERA and 1.26 WHIP. He has never pitched against the Cubs.

The weather in Chicago is expected to be cloudy with temperatures in the upper-60's, and a strong chance of severe thunderstorms. First pitch, weather permitting, will be at 7:05 P.M., CDT, and the game will be televised on CSN and SNY.
