So the Cubbies are stacked up against Alfredo Simon and the Cincinnati Reds tonight at Wrigley. Against Simon, most of the Cub’s lineup has limited experience. Only Ben Zobrist and Anthony Rizzo have more than 10 at-bats against the young righty, and Rizzo is the only player in the lineup tonight for the Cubs who has taken Simon deep. Here are RizzO’s 2 homers vs Alfredo Simon:
Aaaaaand another one:
Rizzo is batting .333 against Simon in his career, with 2 HR and 3 RBI over 15 AB. Miguel MANtero has also had success against Simon, batting .500 with 1 RBI in 4 AB.
John Lackey takes the hill for the good guys. Let’s keep the W train rolling… First pitch at 8:05, catch the game on CSN. Go Cubs Go!
