Cubs Set NLCS Game 2 Lineup vs. Dodgers

The Chicago Cubs coughed up a lead and dropped Game 1 to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday, but they’ll be looking to make a big recovery as they try to tie the series in Game 2.

The Cubs, who got a two-run homer from Albert Almora in the fourth inning, had 18 consecutive batters retired by the Dodgers after the long ball. A lack of offensive punch has been an issue for the Cubs throughout the postseason, and they’ll need to figure out a way to put runs on the board if they want to have any chance of beating the high-flying Dodgers.

So how will the Cubs line up against Dodgers starter Rich Hill? Here's how Joe Maddon put together his team for the important game:

1 Jon Jay - LF

2 Kris Bryant - 3B

3 Anthony Rizzo - 1B

4 Willson Contreras - C

5 Albert Almora Jr. - CF

6 Addison Russell - SS

7 Jason Heyward - RF

8 Javier Baez - 2B

9 Jon Lester - P

First pitch is at 6:38 p.m. and the game will be broadcast on TBS
