Cubs will have the Lester on the mound (6-2, 2.44 ERA) against righty Nick Kingham (2-2, 4.03 ERA).
Addison Russell returns to the starting lineup for the first time since Jun 3 after injuring his middle finger during an at-bat. Javy Baez gets the day off since he has been covering for Russell while he has been out.
Kris Bryant gets his second straight start at leadoff since he went 3-for-4 in his first attempt on Friday.
The Cubs will try to go for five straight wins and it will be televised on ABC 7 Chicago and MLB.TV.
