The Chicago Cubs are finding ways to win one-run games this season. Close games have been a struggle for the Cubs in recent seasons but with Craig Counsell now in the team's clubhouse, the team is finding ways to squeak out victories and that was the case on Monday night in the team's 3-2 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks in 11 innings.

All eyes will be on Michael Busch tonight as the Cubs' rookie first baseman looks to make it six consecutive games with a home run.

Probable starting pitchers

  • Kyle Hendricks is on the bump for the Cubs and this will be another difficult test for the veteran right-hander. Hendricks has drawn difficult matchups to open the season as his first three starts have been against the Texas Rangers, Los Angeles Dodgers, and San Diego Padres. Hendricks has a 12.08 ERA to open the season and Tuesday's start will be another case study for whether or not the veteran could be a part of a potential postseason rotation.
  • Tommy Henry will be getting the start for the Diamondbacks The Cubs should have some scoring opportunities against Henry tonight as he has allowed 3 home runs in 14 innings pitched this season.
