Chicago Cubs Lineup: Mather Batting Third On Memorial Day

With the Chicago Cubs mired in an epic losing streak, manager Dale Sveum has decided not to shake up his lineup in an effort to squeeze some runs out of what has been a very stagnant offense. During their 12 game losing streak, the Cubs offense has put more than four runs on the board only twice, and in last weekend's series vs. the Pittsburgh Pirates, they scored six runs in three games with only six extra base hits.

Here's the Cubs lineup for Monday's series opening game vs. the San Diego Padres:

  1. David DeJesus, RF
  2. Starlin Castro, SS
  3. Joe Mather, CF
  4. Bryan LaHair, 1B
  5. Alfonso Soriano, LF
  6. Ian Stewart, 3B
  7. Darwin Barney, 2B
  8. Blake Lalli, C
  9. Travis Wood, P
