Chicago Cubs Lineup: Zobrist at the Top, Baez Covering Short, Heyward Stays In Right

Cubs Lineups

The Cubs did not win the first game against the Brewers yesterday, but they have another shot tonight.


Here’s the group for Game 2:

  1. Ben Zobrist, 2B
  2. Kris Bryant, 3B
  3. Anthony Rizzo, 1B
  4. Willson Contreras, C
  5. Kyle Schwarber, LF
  6. Ian Happ, CF
  7. Jason Heyward, RF
  8. Javy Baez, SS
  9. Kyle Hendricks, P

Kyle Hendricks returns to the mound for his second start since returning from the disabled list, and he’s got a solid lineup behind him. With Addison Russell on the bench, Javy Baez covers shortstop and Ben Zobrist plays second base, while leading off. Willson Contreras continues to bat cleanup and Ian Happ returns to the lineup and center field.

Other than that, everything seems pretty normal. I will point out that Jason Heyward, who has been ice cold lately (1-19 stretch), is still in the lineup bating seventh and playing right field against the righty Junior Guerra.

As usual, we’ll have your full Pre-Gamin’ closer to game time (6:10 CT).
