Today, the Chicago Cubs make their way to St. Louis in a rematch of the 2015 NLDS against the St. Louis Cardinals.
The Cubs took that series, three games to one, and knocked the Cardinals out of the playoffs. St. Louis has a fairly different look this year, though, as two of their key contributors – John Lackey and Jason Heyward – made their way to the north side over the offseason.
Incidentally, both are starting today, too. Check it out:
- Dexter Fowler, CF
- Jason Heyward, RF
- Ben Zobrist, 2B
- Anthony Rizzo, 1B
- Kris Bryant, 3B
- Miguel Montero, C
- Jorge Soler, LF
- Addison Russell, SS
- John Lackey, P
The rest of the lineup is the regular crew, with Javy Baez sitting today. Hopefully the bats are ready to start clicking again today against Mike Leake.
