ST. LOUIS — The Chicago Cubs have announced their lineup for a pivotal Game 2 in the best-of-five National League Division Series against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Wild-card game hero Kyle Schwarber is the most notable absence from the lineup. Schwarber had three RBI in the Cubs’ 4-0 win over the Pirates, and had two hits against the Cardinals Friday night.

But the Cubs are facing lefty Jaime Garcia in Game 2, and Schwarber has had a tough time against lefties in 2015, with a batting average of just .143

Here is the full starting lineup, which the team released Saturday:

1. Dexter Fowler – CF

2. Jorge Soler – RF

3. Kris Bryant – 3B

4 Anthony Rizzo – 1B

5. Starlin Castro – 2B

6. Austin Jackson – LF

7. Miguel Montero – C

8. Kyle Hendricks – P

9. Addison Russell – SS

First pitch is set for 4:37 central. Kyle Hendricks will take the mound for the Cubs.
