Cubs manager Joe Maddon said on paper, it may not look like a good lineup defensively, but says they can get the job done. Also, it’s the same lineup that was behind Jake Arrieta in his last start against the Brewers.
“Hopefully, we’ll grab a lead and eventually move the defense around game in progress,” Maddon said.
