Chicago Cubs Lineup: Chris Coghlan Draws Another Start

Cubs Lineups

happy cubs old logoYesterday, the Chicago Cubs lost for just the second time this month.

Tonight, they’ll square up against a familiar face in Matt Garza to try to keep it that way.

Chicago Cubs Lineup v. Milwaukee Brewers (Matt Garza)

  1. Dexter Fowler, CF
  2. Kris Bryant, 3B
  3. Anthony Rizzo, 1B
  4. Ben Zobrist, 2B
  5. Addison Russell, SS
  6. Chris Coghlan, LF
  7. Jason Heyward, RF
  8. Willson Contreras, C
  9. Mike Montgomery, P


With the righty Matt Garza on the mound, the Chicago Cubs are giving lefty Chris Coghlan the start in left field. And while we may all hope to see Jorge Soler and Javy Baez in there on a more regular basis, if you’re not going to use Coghlan against a righty with rough lefty/righty splits in his favor, when are you going to use him? After all, the playoffs are just around the corner and decisions will have to soon be made.

Other than that, Willson Contreras gets the start behind the plate tonight, batting eighth, and everyone else resumes their regular roles.


We’ll have a full Pre-Gamin’ for you closer to game time.
