Chicago Cubs Lineup: Willson Contreras and Javy Báez Both Back In There

Chicago Cubs

The Cubs have split the first two games of the series, but they’ve got back-to-back lefties coming up, with Julio Urias today and Clayton Kershaw tomorrow. Here’s David Ross’ lineup for Game No. 3 in Los Angeles.

Chicago Cubs Lineup:

1. Willson Contreras, C
2. Kris Bryant, LF
3. Anthony Rizzo, 1B
4. Javy Baez, SS
5. Patrick Wisdom, 3B
6. Jake Marisnick, CF
7. Jason Heyward, RF
8. Sergio Alcantara, 2B
9. Alec Mills, P

Willson Contreras and Javy Báez are actually BOTH back in the lineup after injury scares last night, so that’s swell to see, especially against the lefty. Otherwise, Jake Marisnick gets a start in center, Patrick Wisdom is back at third, and Sergio Alcantara takes second base.

As usual, we’ll have your full Pre-Gamin’ post closer to game time (6:15 CT).
