Red Sox Vs. Cubs Lineups: Chicago Won't Make Lineup Changes For Sunday

Looking to take the rubber match of this weekend's three-game series, the Chicago Cubs aren't making any changes to their lineup as they host the Boston Red Sox on Sunday night. After losing 4-3 to the Red Sox on Saturday, Cubs manager Dale Sveum has opted to avoid shaking things up despite continued offensive issues.

The Cubs are facing Boston starter Franklin Morales on Sunday after usual starter Josh Beckett was placed on the disabled list. Morales has exclusively been a starter over the past three years, as he's making his first MLB start since April 29, 2009, with the Colorado Rockies.

Chicago:

1. Reed Johnson (RF)
2. Darwin Barney (2B)
3. Starlin Castro (SS)
4. Alfonso Soriano (LF)
