The Red Sox are visiting Wrigley Field this weekend for a three-game set with the Cubs.
The Chicago Cubs kick off a weekend series against the Boston Red Sox on Friday afternoon at Wrigley Field. It's the first time that the two teams have matched up since the Cubs hired president of baseball operations Theo Epstein away from the Red Sox to helm the team's rebuilding effort.
On Friday, the Cubs have Ryan Dempster going on the mound against Boston's Daisuke Matsuzaka. Matsuzaka recently made his 2012 debut on June 9 against the Washington Nationals, allowing four runs over five innings while striking out eight hitters.
