Cubs Vs. Twin Preview: Chicago Aims To Break 4-Game Skid On Sunday

The Chicago Cubs (19-40) have lost 8 of their last 9 games, but they hope to end that trend in their upcoming matinee interleague game against the Minnesota Twins (24-34).

Chicago lost the first two games of the series -- the team's first foray into an American League park -- and has now not won since their June 5 blastoff against the Milwaukee Brewers when they won 10-0. The team has scored an average of 3.5 runs per game over their latest losing streak -- just a tick down from their season average of 3.6 -- but they have allowed an average of 7.8 runs per game.

The Cubs do have a pitcher with the ability to reverse that number on the mound Sunday as SP Ryan Dempster and his sparkling 2.59 ERA looks for his second win of the season.

Game Time: Sunday, June 10, 1:10 p.m. CDT

Location: Target Field, Minneapolis, MN

Broadcast: WGN (television), WGN 720 AM (radio)
