Chicago Cubs Lineup (5/18/19): Schwarber Leads Off, Bryant in RF, Lester Pitching

The Cubs hit six home runs last night in a rout of Max Scherzer and the Nationals, erasing the offensive shortcomings of the previous two contests in Cincinnati. But things don’t get easier tonight with Stephen Strasburg on the hill. Kyle Schwarber has been putting together some really nice plate appearances and he’s in the leadoff spot again, followed by the axe-wielding Kris Bryant in the other corner outfield spot.

Anthony Rizzo bats third, Javy Báez is at short, Willson Contreras catches, Jason Heyward handles center, Addison Russell is at second base, and David Bote is at the hot corner.
