Chicago Cubs Lineup: Hammel Takes on the Dodgers, Baez at 2B, Zobrist in RF

I have the feeling that this is going to be a really fun series. The Dodgers (27-24) come to town trailing the first place Giants by 4.5 games, not exactly what they were hoping for at this point in the season. The Cubs (34-14) on the other hand have been flying high and are riding a five game winning streak as they enter the game today. Winning is fun and that makes baseball much, much more fun.

Jason Hammel (6-1, 2.17 ERA) is on the mound today for the Cubs. Javier Baez will play second base today as Ben Zobrist, who has been the hottest player in baseball over the last 30 days, heads to right field. Jason Heyward shifts over to center field to fill in for Dexter Fowler, who has the day off.
