4/27 Cubs optimistic lineup

There’s a 100 percent chance of rain Wednesday at Wrigley Field, but Mike Quade has posted his lineup and he has Jeff Baker at second base and batting third. Do a rain dance to get this one in. This is the Rockies’ only trip to Chicago. Here’s the lineup:

RF Fukudome

SS Castro

2B Baker

3B Ramirez

1B Pena

CF Byrd

LF Colvin

C Hill

P Coleman

Baker is batting .500 (8-for-16) with two runs, two doubles and three RBIs in his four-game hitting streak. He has a .409 average with four doubles, a homer, nine RBIs and five multi-hit efforts in 14 games this year. This will be Baker’s fifth start at second and first in the No. 3 hole.

The Cubs do need to get something going in the three-hole. Marlon Byrd and Starlin Castro have hit there so far and are a combined .245 with six RBIs.
