The Cleveland Indians return to Wrigley Field for the first time since 2016 to wrap up the series vs the Cubs.
The Indians are heading up to Chicago to take on a familiar foe. Instead of their usual trips to the south side, they head to Wrigleyville for a date with the Chicago Cubs. This is sure to a be fun series as both teams are trying to find their groove. The Cubs sit at 25-19 yet they are third in the tight NL Central race. Meanwhile the Indians are the disgusting couch that your dad sees sitting on the side of the dumpster and says “we can still use this baby if no one else will!” The dumpster is the rest of the AL Central.
The last time these teams faced off they split two games in Cleveland. The last of which is when Andrew Miller got hurt and things started going downhill for the Tribe. Cleveland has gone 9-14 since that last meeting. Their most recent loss was at the hands of the Houston Astros, whom they will see again this weekend.
Here’s how these teams stack up
Cleveland Indians (22-23) vs Chicago Cubs (25-19)
I don’t speak Spanish but this looks like an exciting tweet.
The Chicago Cubs have Ben Zobrist hitting in the leadoff spot now because why not. The Cubs have used a different lineup in each of their last five games. But they’re 25-19, so if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Also Kris Bryant is batting .319 with six long-balls in May. That it pretty dang good.
