Chris Rusin is scheduled to start for the Cubs on Sunday. The left-hander is 1-3 with a 7.30 ERA in his first taste of the major leagues. He has struggled even more of late, with an 8.56 ERA in his last three starts.
The Diamondbacks will be sending a right-hander to the mound for Sunday's game. Josh Collmenter will get the start for Arizona, he's currently 5-3 this season with a 3.80 ERA. Collmenter has boasted an excellent strikeout to walk ratio in 2012, and that has been the basis of his success. He's got extreme flyball tendencies though, so keeping the ball in the yard will be a focus for the young righty.
First pitch is scheduled for 3:10 p.m. CT from Chase Field in Arizona. The game will be televised on WGN, and the radio broadcast will be carried by WGN 720. After the game, the Cubs will head back to Chicago for their final series of 2012. They'll face the Astros in Houston's last action as a National League club.
