#Cubs and Arrieta face Giants
Jorge Soler will start in left field and Ben Zobrist move to right for the Cubs in Game 3 of the NL Division Series against the Giants on Monday night.
Miguel Montero will catch Jake Arrieta, and the Cubs now join the 1915 Red Sox, the 1927 Yankees, the 1998 Padres and the 2002 D-backs as the only teams to start three catchers in a postseason series.
Here’s the lineup:
This will be Soler’s first postseason start. The outfielder batted .474 in seven playoff games last year. He was sidelined this year because of a sore right side, and hit .238 in 86 regular season games.
The odd man out is Jason Heyward, who is 1-for-7 in the two NLDS games so far.
With Arrieta facing Madison Bumgarner, this is a pitching rematch from Sept. 3 in Chicago. Bumgarner allowed two earned runs in six innings and got the win. Arrieta gave up three runs (two earned) in six innings and took the loss in a Giants 3-2 victory.
