#Cubs lineup vs Tigers
Jon Lester takes the mound Tuesday night as the Cubs open a brief two-game series against the Tigers in Detroit. Miguel Montero will be the DH. This is the Cubs’ first trip to Detroit since 2009, and they’ve had a tough time with the Tigers, who lead the series, 13-4.
Here’s the lineup:
* The Cubs are 15-10 in their last 25 games, and 16 of those games have been against teams with above .500 records. As Joe Maddon likes to say, if you want to be the best, you have to beat the best.
* The Cubs were 9-11 in Interleague games last year. They’re 1-1 so far after a rain-shortened series vs. the Royals.
