At this point, there are no “gimmie” games for the Arizona Diamondbacks. Even at 5-12, the Chicago Cubs present a formidable opposition as the two clubs clash in a battle of last place teams at Wrigley Field. Bronson Arroyo takes the hill tonight and will be opposed by Chicago’s Travis Wood in the first of four games at America’s oldest Major League stadium.
Arroyo will be looking to lower his sterling 9.95 ERA against the Cubbies who are getting an outstanding start by Emilio Bonifacio. The veteran second baseman is tearing it up early with a line of .366/.416/.423.
Here is the D’backs’ starting lineup:
Game time is set for 5:05 PM MST.
