Chicago Cubs (26-42) at Cleveland (31-37), 7:05 PM (STO)

Starting Pitchers:

Chicago: Sean Marshall (3-5, 4.82 ERA)
Cleveland: Jason Johnson (3-7, 6.00 ERA)

The Cubs have one of the worst offenses in baseball, scoring just 267 runs. What's mind-boggling to me is that they've hit just 56 home runs (29th in baseball) despite playing their home games in Wrigley Field.

Facing the Cubs' offense is Jason Johnson, who, along with his defense, has allowed 122 baserunners in 72 innings. Opposing hitters are batting .343 off him.

Something's gotta give.
