Chicago Cubs NLCS Game 5 Lineup: The Usual Lester Crew

Chicago Cubs

happy cubs old logoTonight, the Chicago Cubs will look to get their second lead of the NLCS, with a win over Kenta Maeda and the Dodgers.

This is their first start against a righty since Game 1, and although the personnel are the same, the relative order is different.

Chicago Cubs Lineup v. Los Angeles Dodgers (Kenta Maeda):

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

Again, it’s a very familiar group for Jon Lester starts, with just one twist: Instead of going Addison Russell, Jason Heyward, Javy Baez in the five through seven spots of the lineup, we get the order above.

Other than that, everything is the same. David Ross catches, Javy Baez continues to start at second base, Ben Zobrist continues playing the outfield, and Jon Lester takes the mound.

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