The Cubs took Game 1.0 on Opening Day 2.0 to move 4.0 games ahead of St. Louis, which is nice. With the Brewers playing an incredibly weak schedule for the foreseeable future, it’s imperative that the Cubs keep winning.
Joc Pederson leads off in left, Kris Bryant is back at third base for the first time in nearly two months, and Javy Báez is at short. Anthony Rizzo is at first after a big shot yesterday, Willson Contreras is catching, and Ian Happ is in center. Jason Heyward in right and Sergio Alcántara at second round things out.
