Chicago Cubs Lineup: Higgins Behind the Plate

Chicago Cubs

The Cubs stopped their losing streak yesterday with a 2-1 win over the Marlins at Wrigley Field. This afternoon, they’ll look to secure a series win behind a Smyly-Higgins battery.

Chicago Cubs Lineup:

  1. Rafael Ortega, CF
  2. Willson Contreras, DH
  3. Seiya Suzuki, RF
  4. Ian Happ, LF
  5. Nico Hoerner, SS
  6. Frank Schwindel, 1B
  7. P.J. Higgins, C
  8. Zach McKinstry, 3B
  9. Chris Morel, 2B

SP: Drew Smyly

With Higgins behind the plate, Willson Contreras settles back into the DH role, a spot which might be the key to keeping Contreras in Chicago beyond this season.

Meanwhile, Zach McKinstry is making another start at third base – his third straight – but he’s still looking for his first hit as a Cub.
