Chicago Cubs Lineup: Lackey’s Revenge, Attempting to Shut Cardinals Down Again

The first time John Lackey (4-2, 3.31 ERA) faced the Cardinals (23-21) this year he completely baffled them, pitching seven innings and scattering four hits, while striking out 11 batters. It was a glorious return to his former stomping grounds and a wonderful way for the Cubs (29-13) to start the season series against the rival Cardinals.

Fast forward to today and the Cubs now hold a seven game lead over the third place Cardinals. They’ll be looking to build on that lead tonight.

Here’s the Cubs’ lineup:

John Lackey (R)
@ Cardinals – Adam Wainwright (R)
1. Dexter Fowler (S) CF
2. Kris Bryant (R) RF
3. Ben Zobrist (S) 2B
4. Anthony Rizzo (L) 1B
5. Jorge Soler (R) LF
6. Miguel Montero (L) C
7. Javier Baez (R) 3B
8. Addison Russell (R) SS
9. John Lackey (R) P
