Cubs lineup vs. Brewers, Rizzo out with injury

The Chicago Cubs (55-48) will take on the Milwaukee Brewers for the rubber match of the three-game series on 1:10 PM CDT on Sunday afternoon televised on CSN Chicago and TBS.

Slugger Anthony Rizzo is out of today's lineup because of a sore back. Rizzo has had some back issues throughout the season and it looks like the problem has flared up again for him.

In 2017, Rizzo is batting .257 with 24 homers and 67 RBI. Rookie Victor Caratini will replace Rizzo in the lineup and play first base for the first time in the majors. However, he has experience at first base starting 24 games at Iowa this season.

The Cubs are currently in first place in the National League Central (1.5 games) ahead of the Brew Crew.
