Chicago Cubs Game 2 NLCS Lineup: Sticking With Defense

Chicago Cubs

happy cubs old logoThe Chicago Cubs now look to go up two games in this NLCS against the Dodgers. Can this crew score a few runs off that Clayton Kershaw guy?

Chicago Cubs Lineup v. Los Angeles Dodgers (Clayton Kershaw):

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

With a lefty on the mound, the Cubs get an extra righty in the lineup in the form of Willson Contreras, but otherwise, they’re sticking with the defensively-oriented lineup. That means Jason Heyward stays out in right field.

Hopefully the middle of the Cubs’ lineup can get going – specifically Anthony Rizzo and Addison Russell – but it’s not like it’s easy for anyone to get going against Clayton Kershaw. More on that in a bit.

And we’ll have a full Pre-Gamin’ for you close to game time.
