Cubs reveal lineup for NLCS Game 3 vs. Mets
CHICAGO — The Chicago Cubs know who they’re going with in a crucial Game 3 of the National League Championship Series.
The NLCS shifts to Wrigley Field Tuesday night. Though it’s technically not do-or-die for the Cubs, only one team has ever come back after falling down in an MLB postseason series three games to none (the Boston Red Sox did it in 2004).
The Cubs will instead look to get back in the series with pitcher Kyle Hendricks on the mound. Jorge Soler, who did not start Game 2, will be in the starting lineup Tuesday night.
Here is the full lineup for the Cubs in Game 3:
1. Dexter Fowler, CF
2. Kyle Schwarber, LF
3. Kris Bryant, 3B
4. Anthony Rizzo, 1B
5. Starlin Castro, 2B
6. Jorge Soler, RF
7. Miguel Montero, C
8. Kyle Hendricks, P
9. Javier Baez, SS
First pitch is set for 7:07 central.
Pitcher Jacob deGrom will take the mound for the Mets.
