Cubs unveil lineup for Game 2 against Cardinals
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
