Chicago Cubs second baseman Starlin Castro will bat in the the two-hole for the fourth consecutive game in Sunday night’s series finale against the New York Yankees. Castro has typically batted leadoff when facing a left-handed starter. Once again, manager Mike Quade has loaded up the lineup with right-handed bats as the Cubs face Yankees' lefty CC Sabathia. Sabathia will be the fourth former Cy Young winner the Cubs have faced in the past 10 games (Roy Halladay and Cliff Lee of the Philadphia Phillies and Zack Greinke of the Milwaukee Brewers).
