Chicago Cubs Lineup: Patrick Wisdom’s Starting at 3B

Chicago Cubs

Oh, you’ve lost five games in a row? How about a plane ride to the West Coast for a late-night game against MacKenzie Gore and the 19-10 San Diego Padres? That should help!

Chicago Cubs Lineup: 

1. Willson Contreras, DH
2. Seiya Suzuki, RF
3. Patrick Wisdom, 3B
4. Yan Gomes, C
5. Frank Schwindel, 1B
6. Nico Hoerner, SS
7. Ian Happ, LF
8. Nick Madrigal, 2B
9. Jason Heyward, RF

SP: Kyle Hendricks, RHP

Willson Contreras has led off a whole bunch of games here lately, and I’m sure he’s loving it. With another lefty on the mound tonight, he’s right back up top. Oh, and after all that’s happened this past week, there’s Patrick Wisdom and Frank Schwindel starting at their usual infield corners, right where they’ve been all season long.

The changes tonight are less about personnel decisions (though you’ll notice Jason Heyward, not Michael Hermosillo, in there against a lefty) and more about the order of operations. Ian Happ (struggling a bit lately) and Jason Heyward are moving down, while Nick Madrigal and Yan Gomes are moving up.

As usual, we’ll have your full Pre-Gamin’ post closer to game time (8:40 CT).
