#Cubs Opening Night lineup vs Angels
Jake Arrieta will get the Cubs season started Monday night when they face the Angels and right-hander Garrett Richards in Anaheim. First pitch will be at 9:05 p.m. CT/7:05 p.m. PT. The game will be broadcast on television on ABC 7 Chicago and ESPN2, and on radio on 670 AM The Score. Here’s the lineup:
Arrieta is coming off a historical season in which he went 12-1 with 0.75 ERA after the All-Star break. This will be his second career Opening Day start. He threw seven shutout innings for the Orioles in 2012 against the Twins.
This year marks the first time the Cubs will open a season against an American League opponent. They are hoping to finish the year beating an AL team as well.
