Cubs vs. Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park

TV: WGN Friday; FOX Saturday; ESPN Sunday

Radio: WGN 720-AM

Pitching matchups: The Cubs' Doug Davis (0-1) vs. Jon Lester (5-1) Friday at 6:10 p.m.; Carlos Zambrano (4-2) vs. Alfredo Aceves (1-0) Saturday at 6:10 p.m.; Matt Garza (2-4) vs. Tim Wakefield (0-1) Sunday at 7 p.m.

At a glance: This is the Cubs' first trip to historic Fenway Park since the 1918 World Series. The two teams played at Wrigley Field in 2005, with the Cubs winning two of three. The Red Sox are piecing together their pitching rotation because of injuries. Davis will be making his second Cubs start. He is 3-2 with a 3.79 ERA against the Red Sox. Garza is 7-4 with a 3.83 ERA in 19 games vs. Boston. Adrian Gonzalez entered Thursday leading the Red Sox in batting average, homers, RBI and hits; Kevin Youkilis led on on-base percentage. The two teams will wear throwback uniforms of 1918 vintage Saturday.

Next: New York Mets at Wrigley Field, Tuesday-Thursday
