8/30 Cubs lineup

The Cubs open a three-game series against the Phillies Friday at Wrigley Field. Interim Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg becomes the second person to go into the Hall of Fame as a Cub only to manage against the team following enshrinement. Sandberg was admitted into the Hall in 2005. Sandberg joins Rogers Hornsby, who played for the Cubs from 1929-32, and was enshrined in the Hall in 1942. Hornsby faced the Cubs while managing the Reds in 1952-53. A total of 15 Cubs Hall of Famers managed against the organization at some point in their careers, however, Hornsby and Sandberg are the only two to do so following enshrinement into the Hall.

Here’s Friday’s lineup:

Castro SS
Lake CF
Rizzo 1B
Navarro C
Schierholtz RF
Murhpy 3B
Bogusevic LF
Barney 2B
Samardzija P
