September 5, 2012 – Cubs Lineup vs. Nationals

Hopefully the Cubs can keep the pitchers used tonight somewhere around 3-4, I don’t want to see seven trot out there again like last nights Spring Training B game.  The way Chris Volstad starts is going to have a lot to do with that tonight.  Volstad has been outstanding as of late winning his last two starts.  Here is how the Cubs will line up behind Volstad tonight as they face 17 game winner Gio Gonzalez.

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