8/6 Cubs lineup

Both Brett Jackson and Josh Vitters are in the Cubs’ lineup Monday when they open a three-game series against the Padres in San Diego. Travis Wood gets the start. He has lost four in a row. Wood has no record in four career games against the Padres. He faced them in May and did not get a decision, giving up six runs on seven hits over five innings.

With Jackson and Vitters making their Major League debuts Sunday, the Cubs have now utilized 13 rookies this season, including seven position players: Adrian Cardenas, Welington Castillo, Steve Clevenger, Jackson, Blake Lalli, Anthony Rizzo and Vitters. The six rookie pitchers used: Jairo Asencio, Jeff Beliveau, Lendy Castillo, Rafael Dolis, Scott Maine and Blake Parker.

Here’s Monday’s lineup:

Jackson CF

Barney 2B

Rizzo 1B

Soriano LF

Vitters 3B

Can hardly wait for the game. Jackson and Vitters will hopefully feel right
at home. Hope they do well. The beginning of a new era. Go Cubs.

And one day in the future, we will have Soler, Biaz and Amora in this lineup.

Baez. Almora.

Jackson – 3 strike outs so far this game. My oh my.
