Red Sox-Cubs finale: Things to know
As the Red Sox and Cubs play the last of their three-game series tonight at Wrigley Field, here are some things to keep in mind:
*. Franklin Morales is making his first start since 2009. That’s not good news for the Cubs, who are 3-14 against left-handed starters this season.
* Since that last start, Morales has had only two appearances longer than 2 innings. Those two appearances happen to be his last two appearances (4 1/3, 3 innings)
* Morales is one of the 10 hardest-throwing lefties in the majors.
