Tuesday's batting lineup for the second game of the series between the Cubs (65-46) and the Royals (34-78) at 7:15 p.m. CDT will be the following:

1. Anthony Rizzo 1B
2. Javier Baez 2B
3. Ben Zobrist LF
4. Jason Heyward RF
5. David Bote 3B
6. Kyle Schwarber DH
7. Ian Happ CF
8. Addison Russell SS
9. Victor Caratini C

It will be a pitching battle between Mike Montgomery (3-4, 3.90 ERA) and righty Brad Keller (4-4, 3.39).

Heyward is batting in the cleanup position for the first time this season. What a difference a year makes hitting-wise for J-Hey.

The Cubs game will be televised nationally on NBC Sports Chicago.
