Chicago Cubs Lineup: Ben Zobrist Back in the Starting Lineup

Cubs Lineups

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:

  1. Jon Jay, LF
  2. Kris Bryant, 3B
  3. Anthony Rizzo, 1B
  4. Ben Zobrist, RF
  5. Willson Contreras, C
  6. Ian Happ, CF
  7. Addison Russell, SS
  8. Javy Baez, 2B
  9. 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).
