#Cubs and Lester face Dodgers
The Cubs stuck to the same lineup in Game of the National League Championship Series as they did in the NL Division Series, starting Ben Zobrist in left field and Javier Baez at second base to back up starter Jon Lester.
First pitch for Game 1 of the best of seven series was scheduled for 8:08 p.m.ET/7:08 p.m. CT from Wrigley Field (FS1).
Here’s the lineup:
The Cubs made one change regarding the playoff roster and added lefty Rob Zastryzny, while infielder Tommy La Stella was taken off. The Dodgers were last in the Majors against left-handed pitching. Zastryzny gives them four in the pen, joining Travis Wood, Mike Montgomery and Aroldis Chapman.
