Your lineup and weather on the 8s!
It’s 12:10 CT, and there’s even a smidge of sunshine peeking through the overcast. The tarp is off, and guys from both teams are warming up on the field. I have cautious optimism. The rumor seems to be that they won’t wait all night to try to get this in, since the Cubs go to the West Coast after the game.
Brendan Ryan is leading off and playing second base, with Eckstein at short in the 9 hole. As mentioned last night, Eckstein is 4-for-29 against Lilly. The full lineup: 1.Ryan 2B – 2.Ankiel LF – 3.Pujols 1B – 4.Encarnacion RF – 5.Rolen 3B – 6.Edmonds CF – 7.Molina C – 8.Pineiro P – 9.Eckstein SS
