7/2 Cubs lineup
Chris Rusin gets the start Tuesday night for the Cubs as they open a three-game Interleague series against the Athletics. Rusin, who was named to PCL All-Star team, earlier today, was 7-7 with a 3.27 ERA in 17 games (16 starts). He leads the PCL in innings pitched and a 1.10 WHIP, and was tied for fourth in opponents batting average (.241).
This will be the Cubs’ first-ever regular season game at O.co Coliseum, the 121st different ballpark in which they’ve played. After tonight, the Cubs will have played a regular-season game in every current Major League city and a game in every active ballpark except the new Yankee Stadium.
Here’s the lineup:
