Cubs @ Mets: Lackey vs Matz (Game 78)

CHC (51-26): RHP John Lackey (7-4, 3.29)
NYM (40-37): LHP Steven Matz (7-3, 3.29)
First pitch: 6:10pmCST
Lackey got lit up in Miami on Saturday (4.1 IP, 7 ER, 5 K, 3 BB). He was 1-0 with a 1.29 in two starts last year against the Mets. Overall, they are 39-166 (.235) against him. Granderson is 10-41 with a HR.
Matz, who is dealing with a bone spur, was given an extra day—as if that will help. He had a no-decision in Atlanta his last time out (4.1 IP, 6 ER, 0 K, 0 BB). He’s 0-2 with a 5.91 so far this year. None of the Cubs have faced him.
Hammel (7-4, 2.58) versus deGrom (3-4, 2.67) tomorrow at 6:10pmCST.

Triandos $2.1 MIL is the 2nd highest non 1st rd pick signing bonuses by Cubs, only Dillon Maples 14th rd $2.5 MIL (no pool limits in 2011) is more. Maples $2.5 MIL is a MLB record (and likely always will be) for anyone drafted below the 3rd rd.

d.maples hits e.sosa in the skull (helmet) with a 95mph fb. he's up and walking, but he got smacked hard. if this was boxing he would have been down for a few 10-counts.
i can't believe they're letting him stay in the game. boog really can't believe it.
