Zobrist scratched from lineup with injury

Cubs second baseman Ben Zobrist has been scratched from tonight's lineup because of a stiff neck. Hopefully, this injury won't be a long-term deal and purely precautionary because he is one player that the Cubs will need down the stretch and if they make it deep into the playoffs.

Young outfielder Ian Happ will take his spot and play centerfield while Kris Bryant moves over the right field.

Happ will bat ninth in the lineup and pushes David Bote to the sixth spot.
