Saturday was a game that the Chicago Cubs need to immediately flush as nothing went well in their 17-0 loss to the Boston Red Sox.

An opportunity remains for the Cubs to win the series against the Red Sox as they wrap their weekend series against the Red Sox at Fenway Park on Sunday night baseball.

Probable starting pitchers

  • Hayden Wesneski will be making the scheduled start for the Cubs on Sunday night against the Red Sox. With recent injuries to Kyle Hendricks and Drew Smyly, Wesneski returned to the Major League level this week and was thrust into Sunday's start after Craig Counsell revealed on Saturday that Jordan Wicks will be scratched due to forearm tightness. Sunday will be an important start for Wesneski as he tries to re-establish himself as a starting pitcher at the Major League level. In two appearances out of the bullpen this season, 6.1 innings pitched, Wesneski has not allowed a run while only giving up 1 hit.
  • Making the start for the Red Sox on Sunday is right-hander Tanner Houck. Houck is averaging just about a strikeout per inning through his first 5 starts this season with an ERA of 1.65. Houck was the losing pitcher of record in his last start, tossing 6 innings against the Cleveland Guardians while allowing 2 runs on 5 hits and 3 walks.
