The Chicago Cubs tonight play the final contest of a three-game set against the New York Yankees to wrap up a seven-game homestand that began earlier this week with four games against the Phillies (3-1) … Chicago has dropped the first two games of this Yankees series, but a victory tonight would give the club a winning homestand and avoid its first three-game sweep at the hands of an A.L. opponent at Wrigley Field since May 18-20, 2012 vs. the White Sox.

The Yankees have three former Cubs on their active 25-man roster: Starlin Castro, Aroldis Chapman and Adam Warren

Castro was a three-time N.L. All-Star (2011-12, 2014) for the Cubs, having made his major league debut in 2010 … in six seasons on the North Side (2010-15), he batted .281 with 62 home runs and 363 RBI in 891 games … in 2011 at age 21, he became the Cubs youngest All-Star in franchise history and led the National League with 207 hits.

Closer Aroldis Chapman was acquired by Chicago July 25 of last season from the Yankees, and went 2-0 with four saves and a 3.45 ERA (6 ER/15.2 IP) in 13 post-season games … with the Cubs facing elimination in Game Five of the World Series, he tossed a careerhigh 2.2 innings to earn the save.

Warren was acquired by Chicago for Castro in December of 2015 … he made 29 appearances for the Cubs, all but one in relief, and posted a 3-2 record before he returned to New York as part of the trade for Chicago to acquire Chapman.

Maddon just has a thing for unorthodox batting orders. Pitchers hitting eighth. Power hitters hitting leadoff. Part of what makes him a baseball guru, I guess. Strange that he managed in the American League for as long as he did, though, with all of those unique batting lineups.
