Here are the lineups for Game 2 of the NLCS between the Cubs and Mets. First pitch is scheduled for 8:07 p.m. ET this evening at Citi Field in New York.

CUBS:

CF Dexter Fowler
LF Kyle Schwarber
3B Kris Bryant
1B Anthony Rizzo
2B Starlin Castro
RF Chris Coghlan
C Miguel Montero
SS Javier Baez
SP Jake Arrieta

Coghlan draws the start in right field over Jorge Soler, as the left-handed hitting Coghlan will be facing a right-handed starter for the Mets. Montero will be behind the plate for Game 2 and Game 1 backstop David Ross will ride the pine. Other than that, the Cubs’ lineup remains the same as in Game 1.

METS:

RF Curtis Granderson
3B David Wright
2B Daniel Murphy
CF Yoenis Cespedes
1B Lucas Duda
C Travis d’Arnaud
LF Michael Conforto
SS Wilmer Flores
SP Noah Syndergaard

Duda and Conforto return to the lineup at first base and left field, respectively, with the Cubs starting right-hander Arrieta. The Mets’ batting order is otherwise similar to Game 1.
