Lineup, Game Notes and Ted Lilly
First the big news pf the day and that is the Monday rehab appearance of Cubs All-Star left hander Ted Lilly!! Ted will start on Monday at O’Brien Field against Burlington, the same team he beat 11-1 with five innings of work in a rehab stint last August. Tickets are available and are Half-Price as part of the season long Half-Price Monday Promotion.
Gonna be good to get home tonight as well. Been a long nine days on the road. The Lilly rehab has also juggled the rotation which will now go as follows:
Tonight RH Trey McNutt
