Cubs Vs. Cardinals Lineups: Johnson, Mather In Lineup Against Lefty

With lefty SP Jaime Garcia on the mound for the St. Louis Cardinals (11-5), the Chicago Cubs (4-12) are sending out their anti-lefty lineup, which includes right-handed batters UTIL Joe Mather and OF Reed Johnson. Here is a look at today's full lineup:

The Cubs have played three games against left-handed pitchers in the 2012 MLB Season, hitting an unimpressive .212/.288/.283 slash -- though their slash against right-handed starters (.240/.298/.340) is hardly much better. Throughout his MLB career, Reed Johnson has proven himself to be a capable lefty-masher, hitting .310/.367/.462 against southpaws.
