Samardzija facing old team as Giants play Cubs

The Chicago Cubs will try to complete a three-game sweep of the visiting San Francisco Giants when the teams meet in the series finale Thursday afternoon at Wrigley Field.

Chicago is coming off victories of 5-3 and 12-11 in the first two games of the series and has won four in a row overall. The Cubs are looking for their first five-game winning streak since April 27-May 5, when the club won seven straight.

"I would like to think it is coming together," Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein said to a group of reporters before Wednesday's game. "It is in our hands. We have a chance to go out there and play really well. You have to go out there and leave no room for doubt.
