Chicago Cubs Lineup: Quiroz Leads Off

Chicago Cubs

The Cubs go for game two (or game five, depending on your series perspective) here in Cincinnati. Here’s the lineup that’ll face righty Luis Cessa.

Chicago Cubs Lineup:

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

SP: Javier Assad, RHP

Just two games left on the season, and Willson Contreras gets at least one more start behind the plate. No day off for Esteban Quiroz even after the terrible mistake to end last night’s game. Clearly the Cubs are determined to give him as many at bats as possible before having to make a roster decision on him this offseason. I get it. Fine with it.

As usual, we’ll have your full Pre-Gamin’ post closer to game time (5:40 CT).
