NLCS, Game 3: Mets vs. Cubs lineups

5 Comments

Here are the Mets and Cubs lineups for Game 3 of the NLCS in Chicago:

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 Jacob deGrom

Mets manager Terry Collins is sticking with the same lineup as Game 2, which means Yoenis Cespedes playing center field so that Michael Conforto can get into the lineup instead of Juan Lagares. Lucas Duda continues to start at first base despite being 2-for-21 with 13 strikeouts in the playoffs.

CUBS:
CF Dexter Fowler
LF Kyle Schwarber
3B Kris Bryant
1B Anthony Rizzo
2B Starlin Castro
RF Jorge Soler
C Miguel Montero
SP Kyle Hendricks
SS Javier Baez

Cubs manager Joe Maddon has switched things up somewhat from Game 2, turning back to Jorge Soler in right field rather than Chris Coghlan and batting shortstop Javier Baez ninth, behind the pitcher.
