Here are the lineups for Game 2 of the NLCS between the Cubs and Mets. First pitch is scheduled for 8:07 p.m. ET this evening at Citi Field in New York.

3B Kris Bryant
1B Anthony Rizzo
2B Starlin Castro

Coghlan draws the start in right field over Jorge Soler, as the left-handed hitting Coghlan will be facing a right-handed starter for the Mets. Montero will be behind the plate for Game 2 and Game 1 backstop David Ross will ride the pine. Other than that, the Cubs’ lineup remains the same as in Game 1.


RF Curtis Granderson
3B David Wright
2B Daniel Murphy
CF Yoenis Cespedes
1B Lucas Duda
C Travis d’Arnaud

Duda and Conforto return to the lineup at first base and left field, respectively, with the Cubs starting right-hander Arrieta. The Mets’ batting order is otherwise similar to Game 1.
