Chicago Cubs Game 2 Lineup: Ian Happ Enters, Nick Madrigal Exits

Chicago Cubs

Well, Game 1 did not go according to plan. Let’s see if the Cubs have any extra luck in the sequel against the left-hander Tyler Anderson.

Chicago Cubs Lineup: 

1. Willson Contreras, DH
2. Seiya Suzuki, RF
3. Ian Happ, LF
4. Patrick Wisdom, 3B
5. Frank Schwindel, 1B
6. Jonathan Villar, 2B
7. Yan Gomes, C
8. Nico Hoerner, SS
9. Michael Hermosillo, CF

SP: Daniel Norris, LHP

With another lefty on the mound this evening, the Cubs are sticking with their all-righty lineup. However, the switch-hitting Ian Happ is entering the conversation by way of left field, pushing Patrick Wisdom to third, Jonathan Villar to second, and Nick Madrigal to the bench.

Yan Gomes and Willson Contreras are also switching jobs (DH to C), but that’s it. Everyone else stays in their place.

As usual, we’ll have your full Pre-Gamin’ post closer to Game 2 (6:40 CT).
