The Cubs six-gamer came to an abrupt end in the eighth inning last night, but they’ll have a shot to start another today! That’s the beauty of baseball.
And this is the Cubs lineup for the afternoon:
- Ben Zobrist, 2B
- Kris Bryant, 3B
- Anthony Rizzo, 1B
- Willson Contreras, C
- Kyle Schwarber, LF
- Addison Russell, SS
- Jason Heyward, RF
- Jon Jay, CF
- Jon Lester, P
The Cubs lineup was delayed today, as the team evaluated Kris Bryant’s ability to play (he hurt his pinky on a head-first slide into third base the other day). And the good news is he’s back! Hopefully he’s actually pain free and gets the Cubs offense going right away.
Other than that, the Cubs loaded the lineup with five lefties (not including Jon Lester) against the righty Adam Wainwright. Let’s see if that does the trick.
As usual, we’ll have your full Pre-Gamin’ closer to game time (3:05 CT).
