Cubs lineup vs. Yankees, Schwarber out

The Chicago Cubs (16-13) will play against the New York Yankees (18-9) at 6:15 p.m. CDT on Saturday night on Fox. Lefty newcomer Brett Anderson will take the mound for the defending World Champions against fellow lefty Jordan Montgomery.

The Cubs are currently in first place in the National League Central and one game ahead of the Reds. Today is actually the 19th anniversary of Kerry Wood striking out 20 batters against the Houston Astros in his rookie year for the Cubs.

One interesting tidbit is that standout Kris Bryant has been on fire in his last 19 games batting .368 with six HR, 12 RBI, and 18 runs.
