The Cubs are going for the doubleheader sweep on this fine, cloudy evening in Wrigleyville.
Bryzzo leads off for the first-place Cubs, which appears to be a new thing that Joe Maddon enjoys doing. I can dig it.

Bryant sat in the first contest, but he pinched hit later in the game and grounded out to third.
Heyward, batting third, hit in the same spot during the first game and went 1-4 with a walk and two runs scored. The athletic right-fielder bolted around the base paths in that first game, going first to third twice and respecting 180. What say you, Evan?
Instead of advertising Cialis or Viagra et al during Cubs games, they should just loop Heyward going first-to-third on Zobrist singles.
