Pre-Gamin’: Cubs v. Reds – Lineup, Broadcast Info, etc.


Today the Cubs head back to Goodyear (still just the city, not the tire) to take on the Cincinnati Reds. Matt Garza takes the ball for the Cubs, hopefully getting close to a regular season pitch count. New Reds ace Mat Latos starts on the other side, but is missing a “T” in his name. Can’t trust a guy like that.


The game is at 3:05 CT, and audio is available on

Today’s lineup hints at either Starlin Castro batting 2nd or Starlin Castro batting 3rd, all without him being in it:

1. David DeJesus, RF

2. Darwin Barney, 2B

3. Alfonso Soriano, LF

4. Bryan LaHair, 1B

5. Joe Mather, 3B

6. Marlon Byrd, CF

7. Alfredo Amezaga, SS

8. Welington Castillo, C

9. Matt Garza, P
