Two games left in the regular season.
The Cubs have two more lineups to drop, and here’s the penultimate.
Chicago Cubs Lineup v. Cincinnati Reds (Tim Adleman):
- Dexter Fowler, CF
- Kris Bryant, LF
- Anthony Rizzo, 1B
- Ben Zobrist, 2B
- Addison Russell, SS
- Jason Heyward, RF
- Javy Baez, 3B
- David Ross, C
- Jon Lester, P
There is no fooling around in this one, as the Cubs are putting the normal arrangement out there behind Jon Lester, who is trying to win number 20 on the year. As you all well know, I’m not one for the pitcher “win/loss” stat, but I am respectful enough to understand that it’s a benchmark for the players. They’ll want to get Lester there today.
Hopefully that means the bats will be swinging like they were last night, and better than they were the last time they faced Tim Adleman.
We’ll have a full Pre-gamin’ for you close to game time.
