wrigley field featuredFrom the Reds’ Spring Training lineup to the Dodgers’ very real playoff lineup. And Zack Greinke (who’s a better hitter than many of those Reds, by the way).

Tsuyoshi Wada will try to bounce back from one of his weaker outings last time out. The Cubs’ lineup features a few reserves rotating in, with Ryan Kalish, Mike Olt, and John Baker all drawing starts.
