Lineup: Rizzo gets look at lefty Niese

6/27/2012

A day after he had two hits and the eventual winning RBI in his Cubs debut, Anthony Rizzo is back in the lineup batting third against New York Mets left-hander Jonathon Niese on Wednesday.

But the lineup has a different look at the top of the order with Joe Mather leading off and playing center field for David DeJesus, who gets a break against the lefty starter.

Here's a look at the rest of the lineup behind starter Jeff Samardzija, who is looking for his first victory since May 29:

1. Mather, CF

2. Starlin Castro, SS

3. Rizzo, 1B

4. Alfonso Soriano, LF

5. Jeff Baker, RF

6. Geovany Soto, C

7. Darwin Barney, 2B

8. Luis Valbuena, 3B

9. Samardzija, P
