Chicago Cubs Lineup: Lester Dishing, Zobrist Gets a Day Off

We mentioned it in our series preview, Ben Zobrist has cooled off considerably lately. He’s slashing .063/.318/.063 over his last six games. He’ll get the day off today in favor of Mr. do-it-all, Javier Baez.

The Cubs (39-16) are looking to get their offense in gear in this series. They’re hitting .196/.288/.349 over the last seven games. They could use a high scoring series to get the offense back in the swing.

Meanwhile, their high-flying pitching looks to continue their domination as Jon Lester (6-3, 2.29 ERA) takes the mound tonight.
