7/6 Cubs lineup
Anthony Rizzo is back in the No. 3 spot in the lineup Saturday for the Cubs’ game against the Pirates.
“Losing [Ryan] Sweeney and [Brian] Bogusevic changes a lot of things,” manager Dale Sveum said. “We had the luxury of people hitting behind people, and
left-handers hitting behind people, and without those two guys in the lineup, it kind of changes things a little bit. We have to get somebody hitting behind Rizzo. [The changes are] more of the cosmetics of the team than anything.”
Bogusevic (hamstring) is still day to day, but improving.
Here’s the lineup:
