The Cubs have two of their first three games against the Marlins, which sets them up for a series win today.
Mike Montgomery is on the mound, and here’s the Cubs’ lineup:
- Anthony Rizzo, 1B
- Kris Bryant, RF
- Ian Happ, CF
- Addison Russell, SS
- Miguel Montero, C
- Tommy La Stella, 3B
- Javy Baez, 2B
- Mike Montgomery, P
- Jon Jay, LF
The Cubs positional rotation continues today, with Kris Bryant heading out to right field and Tommy La Stella covering for him at third. Anthony Rizzo also returns to the lineup and leadoff role after an off day yesterday.
Jon Jay starts in left field once again, where he’s been getting plenty of time with Kyle Schwarber resetting in Triple-A Iowa. Beyond that, it’s Russell and Baez up the middle, Montero catching, and Ian Happ in center.
