Chicago Cubs Lineup: Cubs High-Powered Offense Looks to Punish Brewers Pitching, Baez at 3rd

The Cubs come into this series against the Brewers with the number one offense in the Majors. The Brewers counter with the worst pitching in the Big Leagues so, on paper, we’d expect this to be a blow-out. Of course, that’s why they play the games. If you missed out Brewers series preview — with pitching match-ups, TV/game times, and what to watch for — you can check it out here.

Kyle Hendricks will take the ball for the Cubs tonight at 7:10 CDT. Joe Maddon has, once again, gone with what looks to be his preferred lineup, that includes Kris Bryant in left field and Javier Baez at third base. Jorge Soler is relegated to the bench tonight.
