Chicago Cubs Lineup: Zobrist Back at Second, Lackey Bats Eighth

Cubs Lineups

Tonight, the Chicago Cubs come back after their busy day off, and will get their championship rings.

They also will, you know, play a baseball game against the Dodgers.

Here’s the lineup:

  1. Kyle Schwarber, LF
  2. Kris Bryant, 3B
  3. Anthony Rizzo, 1B
  4. Ben Zobrist, 2B
  5. Addison Russell, SS
  6. Jason Heyward, RF
  7. Willson Contreras, C
  8. John Lackey, P
  9. Jon Jay, CF



It’s a relatively typical grouping for the Cubs today against righty Brandon McCarthy, who is relatively split-neutral for his career.

Willson Contreras will catch John Lackey, who bats in the eight spot.

As usual, we’ll have your full Pre-Gamin’ closer to the 7:05pm CT game time.
