St. Louis Cardinals @ Chicago Cubs game thread - Game 2 - April 8, 2015

After Tuesday night's postponement, the St. Louis Cardinals and Chicago Cubs are slated to play a contest this afternoon at Wrigley Field that will constitute each club's second game of the 2015 season on the fourth calendar day of the season. I write "slated" because the afternoon forecast for Chicago isn't all that different from the one that resulted in a postponement last night. On the other hand, that announcement that last night's game would be played on a later date came hours before first pitch and this afternoon, a couple hours before game time, the Cardinals official Twitter feed is pushing today's contest. So we'll see if they get nine innings in this afternoon.

The Cardinals' lineup:

  1. Matt Carpenter, 3B
  2. Jason Heyward, RF
  3. Matt Holliday, LF
  4. Matt Adams, 1B
  5. Jhonny Peralta, SS
  6. Jon Jay, CF
  7. Yadier Molina, C
  8. Kolten Wong, 2B
  9. Lance Lynn, P
  1. Dexter Fowler, CF
  2. Jorge Soler, RF
  3. Anthony Rizzo, 1B
  4. Starlin Castro, SS
  5. Chris Coghlan, LF
  6. Miguel Montero, C
  7. Arismendy Alcantara, 2B
  8. Jake Arietta, P
  9. Tommy La Stella, 3B
