Chicago Cubs Lineup: Cubs Seek to Make it Two Straight Over the Giants

Well there certainly was a lot that happened in Yesterday’s game (recap here), not the least of which was the injury to Jason Heyward that happened on his spectacular catch. The Cubs (29-11) won the game but lost a key player in Heyward, who’s MRI results should be released momentarily.

Tonight’s lineup will feature Jorge Soler starting in left field and Ben Zobrist in right. Jorge had a great game yesterday, going 2-for-4 with two runs, an RBI — including a home run — and one heck of a great leaping catch. The Cubs will be hoping to see more performances like that from Jorge while Jason is on the mend.

Jon Lester (4-2) is pitching for the Cubs today and will be looking to improve on his already stellar 1.88 ERA.

Here’s today’s lineup for the Cubs:

Jake Arrieta (R)
@ Giants – Matt Cain (R)
1. Dexter Fowler (S) CF
2. Kris Bryant (R) 3B
3. Anthony Rizzo (L) 1B
4. Ben Zobrist (S) RF
5. Jorge Soler (R) LF
6. Javier Baez (R) 2B
7. Addison Russell (R) SS
8. David Ross (R) C
9. Jon Lester (L) P
