Cubs lineup vs. Rockies, Schwarber batting 9th


by - Senior Editor -

The Chicago Cubs (16-12) will battle the Colorado Rockies (12-15) Saturday night at 8:40 p.m. CDT at Salt River Fields at Scottsdale, Arizona.

The game will be streamed on the radio on MLB.com and televised on MLB.TV and MLB Network (out-of-market only).

One lineup note is that Cubs manager Joe Maddon is batting the pitcher eighth again and putting slugger Kyle Schwarber ninth. It will be interesting to see how this works out tonight.
