5/3 Cubs lineup & Barney
Darwin Barney, the National League Rookie of the Month in April, is batting second on Tuesday for the Cubs in Game 2 of their three-game series against the Dodgers. Here’s the lineup:
Barney is the first Cubs rookie to win the monthly award since Geovany Soto did so in August 2008. Soto also won the NL Rookie monthly award in April that year, and was named NL Rookie of the Year in ’08.
Remember, if you want to vote for Barney for the NL All-Star Game, you have to write him in. You can do that online.
