Pregame: Cubs @ Angels, Lester on the Hill – 9:05 CDT

The Cubs take on the Angels again tonight in Anaheim at 9:05 CDT. They’re looking for their first of hopefully many sweeps this year. A repeat performance of last night would likely throw Cubs Kingdom into a frenzy but that’d be fun, and super over-the-top-put-us-in-the-world-series-nowish! Phew.

Zobrist has been moved from the third to the fifth spot with Bryant and Rizzo moving up one spot from last night. And lookie there, yes, that’s Matt Szczur in left field. Interesting that Schwarber is on the bench. No need to worry, I’m sure it’s just Joe mixing things up.

Here’s the lineup:

Jon Lester (L) @ Angels – Andrew Heaney (L)
1. Dexter Fowler (S) CF
2. Jason Heyward (L) RF
3. Kris Bryant (R) 3B
4. Anthony Rizzo (L) 1B
5. Ben Zobrist (S) 2B
6. Jorge Soler (R) DH
7. Addison Russell (R) SS
8. Matt Szczur (R) LF
9. David Ross (R) C
