The Cubs can drive another wedge between the Cardinals and the Wild Card today.
Chicago Cubs Lineup v. St. Louis Cardinals (Alex Reyes):
- Dexter Fowler, CF
- Kris Bryant, 3B
- Anthony Rizzo, 1B
- Ben Zobrist, 2B
- Addison Russell, SS
- Jason Heyward, RF
- Jorge Soler, LF
- Willson Contreras, C
- Jason Hammel, P
Jorge Soler is back! After time missed with a side injury, Soler pinch hit yesterday, and starts today. Hopefully he gears back up, and is healthy for the playoffs, because the bat remains game-changing.
The lineup against Alex Reyes today is basically a copy of yesterday’s lineup, with all the positions in the same spots, and only Soler, Willson Contreras, and Jason Hammel tagging in.
It’s a fairly patient group today, so they could make Reyes – who is a bit wild – work for his outs.
