Chicago Cubs Lineup: Ten At Stake

Chicago Cubs

The Cubs have lost nine games in a row. But unfortunately, that’s not even their worst losing streak of the season (they lost 10 straight from June 4 – June 16). Let’s see if they can maybe try not to have multiple double-digit losing streaks in the same season.

Chicago Cubs Lineup:

  1. Chris Morel, CF
  2. Willson Contreras, C
  3. Ian Happ, DH
  4. Seiya Suzuki, RF
  5. Nico Hoerner, SS
  6. Frank Schwindel, 1B
  7. Patrick Wisdom, 3B
  8. David Bote, 2B
  9. Nelson Velázquez, LF

SP: Adrian Sampson

The Cubs are rolling with a slightly different look versus today’s left-hander. Instead of Willson Contreras at DH and Yan Gomes at catcher (that’s been the most common setup against southpaws), Ian Happ is the DH with Contreras behind the plate.

That leaves left field open for Nelson Velázquez.

In the meantime, Chris Morel is back up top and in center field with Rafael Ortega on the bench.

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