4/3 Cubs lineup and more

The Cubs got a quick wake up call for Thursday’s series finale against the Pirates at PNC Park. In case you didn’t stay awake, the Cubs lost, 4-3, in 16 innings on Wednesday night in a game that took 5 hours 55 minutes, and ended early Thursday.

Here’s the lineup:

Bonifacio CF
Castro SS
Ruggiano RF
Rizzo 1B
Lake LF
Olt 3B
Barney 2B
Baker C
Hammel P

* As of now, Carlos Villanueva is scheduled to start Sunday for the Cubs against the Phillies. Rick Renteria and pitching coach Chris Bosio will discuss their options on the flight home and on Friday in Chicago.

* Renteria moved Castro to the No. 2 spot in the order to try and ease some “anxiousness” that he noticed.

* Renteria was wide awake Thursday.

“It’s deflating [to lose extra inning games] if you want it to be,” Renteria said. “I’m not going to come in here and have these guys laying down and being sad. I’m going to play my music and I’ll come in here every single day ready to go and you say I have a lot of energy, well, that’s what I want those guys to have, too.”

What type of music?

“Everything — rock, pop, salsa, jazz,” Renteria said. “Whatever it takes.”
