The Chicago Cubs now look to go up two games in this NLCS against the Dodgers. Can this crew score a few runs off that Clayton Kershaw guy?
Chicago Cubs Lineup v. Los Angeles Dodgers (Clayton Kershaw):
- Dexter Fowler, CF
- Kris Bryant, 3B
- Anthony Rizzo, 1B
- Ben Zobrist, LF
- Addison Russell, SS
- Javy Baez, 2B
- Willson Contreras, C
- Jason Heyward, RF
- Kyle Hendricks, P
With a lefty on the mound, the Cubs get an extra righty in the lineup in the form of Willson Contreras, but otherwise, they’re sticking with the defensively-oriented lineup. That means Jason Heyward stays out in right field.
Hopefully the middle of the Cubs’ lineup can get going – specifically Anthony Rizzo and Addison Russell – but it’s not like it’s easy for anyone to get going against Clayton Kershaw. More on that in a bit.
And we’ll have a full Pre-Gamin’ for you close to game time.
