6/12 Cubs lineup
Jeff Samardzija starts tonight for the Cubs in the series finale against the Pirates, weather permitting. Rain is in the forecast, but it’s always in the forecast in Pittsburgh. Here’s the lineup:
* Valbuena is batting .384 (28-for-73) with 10 doubles, two homers, eight RBI and a 1.061 OPS in his last 22 games since May 13. The .384 average is tops in the National League and fourth in the Majors in that span.
