  • Chicago (15-14) needs a win to avoid falling back to .500, while Milwaukee (10-21) looks to continue its recent climb in the standings. For the Cubs, the young right-hander, who has struggled at times to open the year, will be a big part of the game plan.

    Cubs starters have repeatedly failed to pitch deep into ballgames, placing even more strain on an already-struggling relief corps. Hendricks has pitched a full six innings just one time this season, struggling to a 5.61 earned run average to start his sophomore season.

    Opposite Hendricks is former Cubs hurler Matt Garza, who enters Sunday’s contest with a 2-4 mark to go along with a 4.58 ERA. The righty has been notably worse at Miller Park than on the road this season, pitching to a 5.29 ERA at home, as opposed to a respectable 3.93 clip away from Milwaukee.

    Here are today’s lineups:

    First pitch is slated for 1:10 p.m. CT at Miller Park. WGN has the television call while 780 WBBM AM has the radio call for Sunday’s finale.
