Today, the Cubs go for another series win, and they bring back the lefties.
Here’s the Cubs’ lineup for today:
- Kyle Schwarber, LF
- Kris Bryant, 3B
- Anthony Rizzo, 1B
- Ben Zobrist, 2B
- Addison Russell, SS
- Jason Heyward, RF
- Miguel Montero, C
- Jake Arrieta, P
- Jon Jay, CF
The Cubs swap in Jon Jay and Miguel Montero, plus Jason Heyward returns to the lineup, giving the Cubs six lefties against Brewers starter Zach Davies. He was solid against all batters last year (quietly so), but about 10 percent less effective against lefties.
They also get an offensive boost in the form of Jake Arrieta, who can swing it a bit.
As usual, we’ll have your full Pre-Gamin’ closer to game time at 1:10pm CT.
