August 14, 2012 – Cubs Lineup vs. Astros

The Cubs go for two wins in a row tonight, try to hold back the excitement, I bet you can’t.  Chris Volstad will take the ball, and as I already predicted in the series preview he will end his calendar year-long losing streak tonight in spectacular fashion.  I know it’s not really going out on a limb to predict a win against the Astros, but I don’t care.  Here is how the Cubs will line up tonight, hint: I like it.

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

Fun Fact:  Only four Cubs have faced Lucas Harrell, two of them are in Iowa (Sappelt, Campana) and one should be (Valbuena).  In total the Cubs have 4 plate appearances against Harrell, ever.  They are 2-for-3 with a walk, Soriano is 1-for-1

Thanks for reading, go Cubs!
