Chicago Cubs Lineup: Matt Duffy Rides Again

Chicago Cubs

The Cubs lost the opener last night and have a very tough matchup against Kevin Gausman and the 91-win Giants today. Here’s the lineup for game 2 in Chicago.

Chicago Cubs Lineup:

1. Rafael Ortega, CF
2. Frank Schwindel, 1B
3. Ian Happ, LF
4. Willson Contreras, C
5. Patrick Wisdom, 3B
6. Jason Heyward, RF
7. Matt Duffy, 2B
8. Sergio Alcantara, SS
9. Zach Davies, P

It’s another day and another familiar group for the Cubs, with the only exception being Matt Duffy’s return to the starting lineup over David Bote. Duffy got a pinch hit appearance last night, but otherwise hasn’t started a game since the 7th. I wonder if he was dealing with something minor?

Meanwhile, Gausman has been expectedly tougher on righties than lefties this season, but neither side has managed a wOBA above .275 all year, so … let’s just say he’s tough on everyone, yeah? As usual, we’ll have your full Pre-Gamin’ post closer to game time (1:20 CT).
