After an annoying loss against the Braves to start their last series at Turner Field, the Cubs look to get back on the horse today and ride out to a victory.
And really, there might not be a better way to do that than to with a lineup featuring the return of first baseman Anthony Rizzo, who was held out of Friday’s lineup with back tightness.
Saturday is a day of (hopefully) triumphant returns as Chris Coghlan receives his first start since being reacquired by the Cubs. He’ll play left field with Albert Almora Jr. getting a breather.
Here is a look at today’s Cubs lineup against Braves right-handed starter Matt Wisler, who is 0-3 with a 7.41 ERA and 14 strikeouts in 17 innings over his last three starts:
- Dexter Fowler, CF
- Jason Heyward, RF
- Kris Bryant, 3B
- Anthony Rizzo, 1B
- Ben Zobrist, 2B
- Chris Coghlan, LF
- Miguel Montero, C
- Addison Russell, SS
- Jake Arrieta, P
A full Pre-Gamin’ for your Saturday enjoyment is on its way.
