Chicago Cubs Lineup: Game One of the Double Header Features Yesterday’s Unusual Lineup

Cubs Lineups

Game one of the Cubs/Rockies three-game, weekday series was rained (hailed?) out last night, so they’ll play a double header today in Colorado.


Game one is at 1:10 CT, and here’s the Cubs lineup:

  1. Kyle Schwarber, LF
  2. Kris Bryant, RF
  3. Anthony Rizzo, 1B
  4. Ben Zobrist, 2B
  5. Miguel Montero, C
  6. Tommy La Stella, 3B
  7. Javy Baez, SS
  8. Jake Arrieta, P
  9. Albert Almora Jr., CF

This afternoon’s lineup is actually the same as the regularly scheduled lineup for last night’s rain out. So if you want, you can read what I said about it yesterday, here.

The highlights, however, are quite easy to spot:

  1. Kris Bryant is in right field – Tommy La Stella covers third base,
  2. No Addison Russell – Javy Baez takes shortstop, and
  3. Willson Contreras gets a breather – Miguel Montero bats fifth

Other than those three items, it’s pretty much business as usual. Let’s see if these Cubs can hit some balls into the air. As usual, we’ll have your full Pre-Gamin’ closer to game time (1:10 CT).
