Game two time!

Friday's batting lineup for the Cubs (1-0) vs. Marlins (0-1) at 6:10 p.m. CT at Marlins Park in Miami, FL will be the following:

1. Albert Almora Jr. CF

2. Kris Bryant 3B

3. Anthony Rizzo 1B

4. Willson Contreras C

5. Kyle Schwarber LF

6. Addison Russell SS

7. Ben Zobrist RF

8. Javy Baez 2B

9. Kyle Hendricks P

Kyle Hendricks will be on the mound today for the North Siders opposed by lefty Caleb Smith.

The 'Professor' makes his 100th MLB start tonight and his 2.94 career ERA is behind only four pitchers with at least 75 starts.

One of the reasons that Almora Jr. gets his first start of the season is that he hits .320 against lefties.

The game will be televised on WGN and MLB.TV.
