Chicago Cubs Lineup: Rivas Right In There

Chicago Cubs

The Cubs will try to build on THE MOMENTUM of a one-game winning streak. Here’s the lineup for the second game of the series with the Braves.

Chicago Cubs Lineup:

  1. Christopher Morel, CF
  2. Willson Contreras, C
  3. Rafael Ortega, DH
  4. Ian Happ, LF
  5. Jonathan Villar, 3B
  6. Nico Hoerner, SS
  7. Jason Heyward, RF
  8. Alfonso Rivas, 1B
  9. Andrelton Simmons, 2B

SP: Justin Steele, LHP

Kyle Wright is a more-or-less split-neutral guy for the Braves, though he’s got the ability to really elevate a great fastball – thus, Patrick Wisdom gets the day off.

Meanwhile, with Frank Schwindel hitting the Injured List, his replacement Alfonso Rivas hops right into the lineup. Hopefully this stretch in the big leagues goes better for him than the last.

As usual, we’ll have your full Pre-Gamin’ post closer to game time (1:20 CT).
