Chicago Cubs Lineup: Schwarber Bats Third, Candelario Cleans Up

Cubs Lineups

After yesterday’s doubleheader split, the Cubs have a chance to win this series. Here’s hoping the site is fixed in time for the EBS …


Here’s the Cubs lineup:

  1. Jon Jay, CF
  2. Kris Bryant, RF
  3. Kyle Schwarber, LF
  4. Jeimer Candelario, 1B
  5. Miguel Montero, C
  6. Addison Russell, SS
  7. Tommy La Stella, 3B
  8. Javy Baez, 2B
  9. Kyle Hendricks, P

After yesterday’s doubleheader, and with Jason Heyward on the shelf, the Cubs maneuver a bunch of guys around, which includes Anthony Rizzo getting a day off. Jeimer Candelario starts at first, and Tommy La Stella starts at third. Just like the iconic final out of the World Series.

Kyle Schwarber slides down into the three spot for this one, with Jon Jay taking leadoff duties.

As usual, we’ll hopefully have your full Pre-Gamin’ closer to game time (2:10 CT).
