September 12, 2012 – Cubs Lineup vs Astros

Let’s hope this one comes in under four hours tonight, that’s all I ask.  The last two nights have been terrible, I guess the Astros figure the longer the game goes the better chance they have to win.  Travis Wood takes the ball tonight and will be backed by a very different lineup as Anthony Rizzo is out of the lineup after last nights collision.  From all accounts he is okay, just sore and in need of a day off.

1. Mather – CF
2. Barney – 2B
3. Castro – SS
4. Soriano – LF
5. Castillo – C
6. Vitters – 3B
7. Sappelt – RF
8. Recker – C
9. Wood

The Cubs look for their fifth straight victory tonight in Houston as they continue their late season surge to distance themselves from the number one pick.  I’m just kidding, the Cubs are playing better as of late and it’s always nice to see winning baseball.  The result however is they will not get the number one pick, that belongs to Houston, they deserve it, yikes.  Justin Germano takes the ball tonight, here is how the Cubs will line up behind him.

1. DeJesus – CF
2. Valbuena – 3B
3. Rizzo – 1B
