#Cubs lineup vs Giants
Manager Joe Maddon overloaded Thursday’s lineup with right-handed hitters against the Giants’ Madison Bumgarner for the Cubs series finale in San Francisco. Here’s the lineup:
This is Bryant’s first start in right field. He had started one game each in left and center.
Dexter Fowler remains day to day with a sore right shin. He also has a sore right hand and sore left elbow, all from foul balls over the course of three games. X-rays of Fowler’s shin were negative.
Dan Haren gets the start. The right-hander is coming off a no-decision Saturday vs. Atlanta, a 9-7 Cubs win. Haren gave up four runs over 4 1/3 innings. He is making his fifth start for the Cubs, and is 1-1 with a 6.05 ERA so far.
