The Chicago Cubs lost again yesterday, dropping the first two games of their series in Cincinnati.
Here’s the group that’ll try to salvage a win and avoid a particularly ugly sweep:
- Jon Jay, LF
- Kris Bryant, 3B
- Anthony Rizzo, 1B
- Ben Zobrist, RF
- Willson Contreras, C
- Ian Happ, CF
- Addison Russell, SS
- Javy Baez, 2B
- Jake Arrieta, P
Ben Zobrist returns to the cleanup spot, where he was originally envisioned so many weeks ago. Hopefully that wrist is back to 100%, and he can knock in a few runs today with the men ahead of him getting on base.
There is a lot of theoretically productivity there in the lineup, but the Cubs have to put bats to balls, so to speak.
As usual, we’ll have your full Pre-Gamin’ closer to game time (12:10 CT).
