Cubs look for Nick Madrigal to ignite ailing offense vs. Giants

Chicago Cubs leadoff man Nick Madrigal and pretty much all Giants hitters not named Joc Pederson will look for improved efforts Saturday when the clubs continue their three-game series in San Francisco.

Madrigal contributed only a walk in his return from Triple-A, but the Cubs benefited from a three-run seventh inning in their 3-2 victory over the Giants on Friday.

Marcus Stroman won a pitchers' duel against Anthony DeSclafani, helping Chicago halt a four-game losing streak while ending San Francisco's run of consecutive wins at three.
