Pirates Vs. Cubs Lineups: Anthony Rizzo, Chicago Looking To Continue Offensive Momentum

The Chicago Cubs will try to build on their huge offensive performance in Sunday's game as they go for the series victory against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday night at Wrigley Field. Anthony Rizzo, who hit his first career grand slam on Sunday, will be back in the No. 3 spot in the finale.

Rizzo and Alfonso Soriano packed quite a middle-of-the-order punch in the Cubs' 13-9 win on Sunday, as the duo combined for six hits and eight runs batted in. The Cubs have hit well all weekend, as they have put up a combined 26 runs in the first three games of the series.

Here are the full lineups:

Pirates

1. Starling Marte LF
2. Jose Tabata RF
3. Andrew McCutchen CF
4. Gaby Sanchez 1B
5. Pedro Alvarez 3B
6. Michael McKenry C
7. Clint Barmes SS
8. Brock Holt 2B
9. Kevin Correia P

Cubs

1. David DeJesus RF
2. Luis Valbuena 3B
3. Anthony Rizzo 1B
4. Alfonso Soriano LF
5. Starlin Castro SS
6. Welington Castillo C
7. Brett Jackson CF
8. Darwin Barney 2B
9. Travis Wood P

The Cubs will send Travis Wood (6-11, 4.23 ERA) to the hill, and he'll be opposite Kevin Correia (10-9, 4.29 ERA), who will attempt to get the Pirates a much-needed series split.
