Jeff Locke (9-5, 3.23) takes on the Cubs' Chris Rusin (2-3, 2.89). Locke looked more like his old self last time out, but leadoff batters reaching base and walks continue to give him problems. Rookie Rusin, 26, has only made 10 starts, and he's been pretty effective in his early work, using an 88 MPH sinker/cutter combo. His peripherals suggest a bit of regression is due, and he did get beat up some in his last outing, so we'll see tonight if that trend continues.
The game starts at 7:05 and will be aired by Root Sports and 93.7 The Fan.
