The final home series of the regular season is here, and it has some serious October implications.
Jake Arrieta will take the mound today, and try to ruin the Cardinals’ fall.
Chicago Cubs Lineup v. St. Louis Cardinals (Mike Leake):
- Dexter Fowler, CF
- Kris Bryant, 3B
- Anthony Rizzo, 1B
- Ben Zobrist, 2B
- Addison Russell, SS
- Jason Heyward, RF
- Chris Coghlan, LF
- Miguel Montero, C
- Jake Arrieta, P
I’ll touch upon it briefly in the Series Preview (publishing shortly), but the Cubs lefty quartet of Jason Heyward, Chris Coghlan, Miguel Montero, and Tommy La Stella have really been hitting lately. And all but La Stella will get a shot at continuing that success today against Mike Leake.
Leake has been mostly split neutral this season, but has strong lefty/righty career splits. It should be a good day for the lefties to continue their hot streaks.
Your full Pre-Gamin’ will come shortly.
