Saturday's batting lineup for the third game of the series between the Cubs (63-46) and the Padres (43-69) at 1:20 p.m. CDT will be the following:

1. Anthony Rizzo 1B
2. Ben Zobrist 2B
3. Jason Heyward RF
4. Javier Baez 3B
5. Kyle Schwarber LF
6. Ian Happ CF
7. Willson Contreras C
8. Kyle Hendricks P
9. Addison Russell SS

It will be a pitching battle between the 'Professor' (7-9, 3.97 ERA) and righty Walker Lockett (0-1, 9.53). This will be Lockett's second major league start so look for the Cubs to try to manufacture some early runs to rattle his confidence.

Youngsters Albert Almora Jr. and David Bote get the day off.

The Cubs game will be televised nationally on NBC Sports Chicago and MLB Network (out-of-market only).
