The Chicago Cubs are trying to operate effectively under a dense cloud of trade rumors and chatter about the future, but they did drop game one of their weekend series against the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday night. Now the Cubs have to look for a rebound effort from Matt Garza after Ryan Dempster picked up his fourth loss in the opener. The Cardinals will counter with Jake Westbrook, who boasts a 1-0 record and 3.75 ERA over 12.0 innings against the Cubs in 2012.
Here is the TV schedule and game time information for Saturday's game:
Game Time: 6:15 p.m. CT
