The Chicago Cubs (38-36) will battle the Miami Marlins at 12:10 p.m. CDT on Sunday afternoon televised on CSN Chicago. Righty Mike Montgomery will take the mound for the defending World Champions.

First baseman Anthony Rizzo will be back in the starting lineup at the leadoff position after a rare off day on Saturday. Rookie Ian Happ will bat third in the lineup and he has 20 extra-base hits which is third in the major leagues with all rookies.

In injury news, Cubs outfielder Jason Heyward is on the disabled list with a hand abrasion and Ben Zobrist is still out with his wrist injury and currently on the 10-day disabled list. Zobrist stayed back in Chicago to do rehab before being activated by the Cubs soon.

The Cubs are currently still in second place in the National League Central (0.5 GB) behind the Milwaukee Brewers.
