Houston Astros Vs. Chicago Cubs: Wednesday Lineups

The Houston Astros will look to sweep away the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday night in Houston, and inch closer to the .500 mark in the process. Houston won Monday night's contest 8-4, and won again on Tuesday 2-1, behind J.A. Happ's solid effort on the mound.

Both Brad Milles and Dale "Send 'Em" Sveum have announced the starting lineups for Wednesday night, and they are as follows:

Chicago Cubs

RF David DeJesus
CF Reed Johnson
SS Starlin Castro
LF Alfonso Soriano
3B Joe Mather
1B Jeff Baker
2B Darwin Barney
C Koyie Hill
SP Jeff Samardzija

Houston Astros

2B Jose Altuve
SS Jed Lowrie
RF Travis Buck
1B Carlos Lee
CF Brian Bogusevic
3B Chris Johnson
LF J.D. Martinez
C Jason Castro
SP Wandy Rodriguez

With Rodriguez, a lefty, on the mound for Houston, the Cubs will be sitting Bryan LaHair -- who has been the team's best hitter to date, despite his recent struggles.
