The Chicago Cubs are only 0.5 games back of the Milwaukee Brewers in the National League Central race.

Sunday afternoon's batting lineup for the final game of the three-game series between the Cubs (37-24) and the Pittsburgh Pirates (31-33) at 1:20 p.m. CDT will be the following:

1. Javy Baez 2B
2. Jason Heyward RF
3. Kris Bryant 3B
4. Anthony Rizzo 1B
5. Ian Happ CF
6. Kyle Schwarber LF
7. Addison Russell SS
8. Chris Gimenez C
9. Kyle Hendricks P

Cubs will have the Hendricks on the mound (4-5, 3.59 ERA) against righty Ivan Nova (2-5, 4.96 ERA). The 'Professor' has given up 12 homers in 12 games this season and in his last start he gave up a season-high five runs in five innings against the Phillies.

The Cubs will try to go for six straight wins and it will be televised on WGN-TV and MLB.TV.

FYI: The starting pitching schedule for the Cubs against the rival Brewers will be Jose Quintana on Monday, Tyler Chatwood on Tuesday, and Mike Montgomery on Wednesday.
