7/29 Cubs lineup

Steve Clevenger will be behind the plate with Paul Maholm when the Cubs close the series against the Cardinals on Sunday at Wrigley Field. Maholm enters the game riding a streak of five straight starts of at least six innings pitched with one or no runs allowed. He’s one of two Cubs lefties since 1900 to do so, joining Rube Kroh, who accomplished the feat in 1909. Maholm is 5-0 with a 0.96 ERA in his last five starts, and the five-game winning streak is a career high.

On the positive side, the Cubs have secured their first winning July since going 18-9 in July 2009. The Cubs are 13-9 with three games remaining. Last year, the Cubs were 9-17 in July.

Here’s the lineup:

DeJesus CF

Castro SS

Rizzo 1B

Soriano LF

LaHair RF

Clevenger C

Barney 2B

Valbuena 3B

Maholm P

Mather gets put in the game and immediately misses a ball that Reed
Johnson would have had!!!! Instead of the inning being over we are now
in big trouble. Mather looks like an old man chasing the ball. GET HIM OUT
of there.
