5/30 Change is in the air
Lou Piniella hinted after Sunday’s game that he’s going to make some changes to the lineup. That could mean Mike Fontenot (.337) and Tyler Colvin (.310) start Monday in Pittsburgh. Fontenot was 5-for-7 on the homestand with two RBIs and three triples, while Colvin was 2-for-7 with a home run, a double and two RBIs.
The team hasn’t come through with big hits. On Saturday in a 7-1 win over the Cardinals, the Cubs were 4-for-11 with runners in scoring position. In the three games prior to that and Sunday, the Cubs are 5-for-33 with RISP.
