Cubs Lineup: Russell Gets a Day Off, Baez in at Short
The Cubs dropped their third series of the year to the Brewers on Thursday, and as a reward they get to face the Giants this weekend.
The Giants have won eight in a row, but I think it’s time for that streak to end. Let’s see what Joe Maddon has in mind to jump start a Cubs offense that has been a little quiet over the past few days.
Chicago Cubs Lineup v. San Francisco Giants (Jake Peavy):
- Dexter Fowler, CF
- Jason Heyward, RF
- Kris Bryant, 3B
- Anthony Rizzo, 1B
- Ben Zobrist, 2B
- Jorge Soler, LF
- Miguel Montero, C
- Javy Baez, SS
- Jake Arrieta, P
Other than that, everything is pretty regular. Fowler leads off, Rizzo bats cleanup and Miguel Montero catches Arrieta. Let’s see if the Cubs can start the weekend right.
We’ll have a full Pre-Gamin’ up closer to game time.
