It was another early hole for the Cubs yesterday (stop it, dudes!), but the bats came through and pulled off the comeback win. Tonight, how about an early lead?
Here’s the Cubs lineup that will try to pull it off:
- Kyle Schwarber, DH
- Kris Bryant, 3B
- Anthony Rizzo, 1B
- Ben Zobrist, 2B
- Addison Russell, SS
- Jason Heyward, RF
- Willson Contreras, C
- Albert Almora Jr., CF
- Jon Jay, LF
The lineup is actually very similar to yesterday’s edition, with Willson Contreras tagging in for Miguel Montero, and that’s the only change, outside of Addison Russell and Jason Heyward flip-flopping spots.
Tonight’s starter, Eduardo Rodriguez, has a reverse split for his young career, so that figures to be part of the reason Jay stays in. Though he continues to hit well this year (.389/.476/.500, with a .519 BABIP, lulz), so why not?
As usual, we’ll have your full Pre-Gamin’ closer to game time (7:08 CT).
