Now they are coming home to face Butler, who was acquired from the Rockies in the off-season.

Notes: The game between the Phillies and Nationals was postponed because of rain. This gave players and staff at least a moment to breath before the emergency double-header the following day. As a result, Rizzo was ruled out at first the inning came to an end. However, this is part of baseball.

On Sunday, the Cardinals will be bringing out RHP Adam Wainwright for the start. Those fourth-place Cubs are headed to St. Louis for a three-game series starting this evening.

The Cubs' rotation needs a shot in the arm. I'm surmising due to the 18 inning game, travel, double-header, travel; and, needed rest in general. In 2016, he was 0-3/5.64 in 22.1 IP/3 HR/14 ER/16 Runs with 15 strikeouts. It is likely that this is a short stay, seeing as how he would attain Super-Two status despite not being able to pay due to a log-jam on the Cubs roster. Leake will be looking to forward to extend his four-game win streak.

On offense, the Cubs have some great hitters. In his seven season career, he is 9-5 against the Cubs.

"Additionally, the clubs exchanged worldwide draft slots as part of the trade." . Saturday will be the 21-year-old's fifth start of the season after being called up from advanced Single-A Palm Beach last week. He has a 3-3 record, in 10 games, with an impressive 1.96 ERA, when facing the St. Louis club.

The Cubs, who allowed eight unearned runs in the previous five games, rank in the middle of the pack in the majors in several defensive metrics, including turning batted balls into outs. In his last start, the lefty struck out nine against just two walks against the Yankees, giving up two runs.

This could be a very solid match-up between Leake and Butler.
