The Chicago Cubs look to avoid a sweep at the hands of the Milwaukee Brewers on Thursday afternoon. The Cubs will give LF Alfonso Soriano a day off; David DeJesus will slide over to left and Bryan LaHair will get the start in right. 3B Josh Vitters will sit his second straight game as the Cubs will turn back to Luis Valbuena in an attempt to get any production from the hot corner.
Chicago will send Brooks Raley (1-2, 6.64 ERA) to the mound to make just his fifth start in the majors. The Brewers will start Shaun Marcum (5-4, 3.19) who they are looking to move by Friday if they can find a suitor.
The Cubs full lineup for the 1:20 p.m. CT game is below:
