Check out today's game preview here.

Fun fact about today's game: Both of today's starting pitchers played college football. Our boy Clayton Richard, as we all know, was a quarterback at the University of Michigan and Cubs starter Jeff Samardzija was an All-American wide receiver at Notre Dame.

Here's how our Friars will line up on this getaway day:

Ross Ohlendorf got his birthday present a day early last night with seven runs of support and a win. But hopefully Clayton Richard and our boys can put some icing on that cake by busting out the brooms and getting the sweep today.

GO FRIARS!! KEEP THE FAITH!!
