Cubs @ Cardinals: Series Thread (Games 14-16)

An early season hot streak brings the 2020 Cubs to a division-leading 10-3 record as they travel to St. Louis for the first time. The Cards (2-3), meanwhile, will be playing only their 6th game of the season following a significant COVID outbreak and a 8-day layoff. The risk of contagion remains the only thing more concerning than the Cubs' bullpen.

Game 14
Friday, August 7, 7:15pmCDT
CHC: LHP Jon Lester (1-0, 0.82 ERA)
STL: RHP Daniel Ponce de Leon (0-1, 6.75 ERA)

Lester has been both good and fortunate so far. The .091 BABIP certainly helps.
