Chris Coghlan gets a rare start in left, albeit his second of the series. I’m usually not much of a fan of “he has great numbers against this pitcher” rationales for starts, but Coghlan does always seem to see the ball really, really well against Leake. Otherwise, Leake is pretty split-neutral this year and for his career.

Thus, the rest of the lineup is pretty standard, with Willson Contreras catching John Lackey again, and Ben Zobrist going back to second base.

You can expect a full Pre-Gamin’ closer to game time.
