Chicago Cubs Lineup: Bote at Third Base

Chicago Cubs

The Cubs are back in action in Philly tonight with Zack Wheeler and the Phillies taking on Marcus Stroman and the Cubs at Citizens Bank Park. Here’s David Ross’ lineup for the second of three games in the series.

Chicago Cubs Lineup:

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

SP: Marcus Stroman, RHP

Tonight’s lineup is pretty similar to yesterday, with one notable exception: David Bote is in there at third base, pushing Patrick Wisdom to DH. That means Willson Contreras is back behind the dish and Rafael Ortega is in center field.

With Alfonso Rivas at first base, there’s no room for Frank Schwindel, but everyone else is where you’d expect to see them.

As usual, we’ll have your full Pre-Gamin’ post closer to game time (5:05 CT).
