#Cubs lineup: Beeler vs Rockies
Dallas Beeler makes his third start this season when the Cubs play host to the Rockies at Wrigley Field on Tuesday night. Here’s the lineup:
* Beeler’s two previous starts have been as the 26th man in a doubleheader. He did not factor in the decision in his last start in game two of Wednesday’s doubleheader against the Reds. The right-hander gave up five runs (three earned) in two innings.
* There are reports the Cubs are looking for starting pitching help prior to Friday’s Trade Deadline, and that they have had talks with the Padres. One target is pitcher Tyson Ross.
* Despite Monday’s win, the Cubs showed that the back end of their bullpen may need some help. Cubs relievers have given up 14 runs over 15 1/3 innings in the last four games.
* Anthony Rizzo is hitting .129 (4-for-31) with one extra-base hit and one RBI in his last eight games. Overall in July, he’s hitting .218 with one homer in 22 games.
