Pregame Chatter: Schwarber Back in the Lineup – Cubs v Athletics
Kyle Schwarber returns to the lineup after he tweaked his knee earlier this week against the Mariners. This was a not-so-subtle reminder of how tenuous things can be during a long MLB season, so we’re thankful, happy, and down-right overjoyed to see him back.
The Cubs take on the Oakland Athletics today at their old digs, Hohokam Stadium. I’m excited to go back and talk a little stroll down memory lane with what it sure to be a sold-out game with a big contingent of sentimental Cubs fans present.
Here’s the lineup:
Kyle Hendricks (R) @ Athletics – Jesse Hahn (R)
1. Anthony Rizzo (L) 1B
2. Javier Baez (R) 2B
3. Kyle Schwarber (L) LF
4. Jeimer Candelario (S) 3B
5. David Ross (R) C
6. Albert Almora (R) CF
7. Willson Contreras (R) DH
8. John Andreoli (R) RF
9. Munenori Kawasaki (R) SS
