Today the Chicago Cubs host the Colorado Rockies at HoHoKam Park, and Matt Garza will get his first start. While Spring Training records aren’t of any real importance, winning is always better than losing.

The game is at 2:05 CT, and will be broadcast on WGN radio.

The lineup features a couple interesting things, including David DeJesus making his lead off debut, and Junior Lake making his starting debut. Blake DeWitt, he of yesterday’s three-run homer, is rewarded with a start at second base, and a prime spot in the lineup:

1. David DeJesus, RF

2. Marlon Byrd, CF

3. Blake DeWitt, 2B

4. Alfonso Soriano, DH

5. Ian Stewart, 3B

6. Junior Lake, SS

7. Anthony Rizzo, 1B

8. Welington Castillo, C

9. Brett Jackson, LF

UPDATE: There’s a Game Thread here on the Message Board, if you’re into early Spring Training non-TV Game Threads.
