#Cubs and Arrieta face Phillies in Game 1
Jake Arrieta will start the first game of Friday’s doubleheader against the Phillies, seeking his 19th win. Here’s the lineup for Game 1:
Friday marks Cubs first traditional (non-split admission) doubleheader since a twinbill vs. Arizona, Aug. 3, 2006, at Wrigley Field. The last traditional road doubleheader for the Cubs happened Sept. 20, 2004, in Florida against the Marlins.
The Cubs are 20-10 (.667) against NL East opponents.
Kyle Hendricks will start the second game for the Cubs.
