If you build it, they will come! The Chicago Cubs will be hosting the strappy San Francisco Giants in an exciting National League playoff series at the grand cathedral of baseball, Wrigley Field. Catch every inning of action from the greatest ballpark on Earth on Oct. 7th beginning at 9pm EST online here!
When San Francisco Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner is angry, watch out. The ace was absolutely devastating to the New York Mets lineup as he mowed down hitters in their NL Wild Card game at Shea Stadium on Oct. 5th. A 3-run jack late in the game by San Francisco’s Conor Gillaspie catapulted the Giants to a miraculous win on the road and into this opening round, best-of-five series against the MLB leading Chicago Cubs.

How will the Giants follow-up a near perfect outing by their ace? San Francisco will be putting right-hander Johnny Cueto on the mound with an ERA of 2.79 and a record of 18-5 for the opening game against the Cubs. Johnny has great control of the ball and likes to work the outside corner of the plate. He can pose real problems for the Cubbies if he is on top of his game.
Chicago will answer with their own ace, Jon Lester, who has been lights-out all season. Jon and the Cubs have been playing a dream season racking-up the best record in the majors at 103-58. The southpaw will be working with an ERA sitting at 2.44 and will be out for his 20th win of the year to go against his 5 losses.
