The Cubs lineup tonight against the Diamondbacks looks a lot like what we’ll see during the regular season, except for the designated hitter, of course. Kyle Hendricks — who’s looked great so far this spring, allowing a mere two hits over five innings — will take the hill for what will likely be at least three innings.
Backing Hendricks is a cast of regulars led by Kyle Schwarber in the leadoff spot. Miguel Montero is catching tonight against his former squad. It’s the Cubs’ first night game in Cactus League play and this should be a fun, high energy contest as the hometown D-backs come to Sloan Park.
