The Chicago Cubs (32-32) will battle the New York Mets at 7:10 p.m. CDT on Wednesday night at Citi Field televised on CSN Chicago and the MLB Network.

Mike Montgomery will take the mound for the defending World Champions as they try to find a way to win back-to-back games on the road.

One lineup note is that first baseman Anthony Rizzo will leadoff again after being a spark plug for his team that led to a 14 run explosion yesterday against the Mets. Backup catcher Miguel Montero will be batting cleanup as he tries to help drive home some runs with his fellow teammates.

The Cubs are currently in second place in the National League Central (1 GB) behind the Brewers.
