#Cubs lineup vs Reds
Jon Lester gets the start Sunday night as the Cubs close their four-game series against the Reds. Here’s the lineup:
* Fans watching the Cubs game tonight may hear the team called “surprising” because of the success by the young talent. Manager Joe Maddon isn’t surprised.
“I think it’ll be that way all year regardless,” Maddon said. “That’s OK. I think we know who we are and what we’re capable of doing. We are young. As the season progresses, these guys are going to get better.”
Maddon said he’s seen young players make “quantum leaps” in performance from April to August and expects the same.
“By August, you’ll be saying ‘wow’ with some of these guys,” Maddon said.
