Cubs Vs. Dodgers Preview: Chicago Sends Out Opening Day Lineup Against LA

The Chicago Cubs are marching through the remaining five games on their 2012 Spring Training Schedule, taking on the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday afternoon.

Friday's starting group features what manager Dale Svuem has suggested will be the Opening Day lineup, including Opening Day starter, RHP Ryan Dempster. Here is a look at today's and the Opening Day's lineup:

  1. RF David DeJesus
  2. 2B Darwin Barney
  3. SS Starlin Castro
  4. 1B Bryan LaHair
  5. LF Alfonso Soriano
  6. 3B Ian Stewart
  7. CF Marlon Byrd
  8. C Geovany Soto
  9. P Ryan Dempster

The Cubs hope to get another performance from Dempster better than they did in the 2011 Opening Day, when the veteran went 6 and 2/3 innings, but allowed 6 earned runs.

Game Time: 3:05 p.m. CDT, Friday, March 30

Location: HoHoKam Park, Mesa, AZ

Broadcast: WGN Radio (no TV broadcast)
