Cubs vs. Diamondbacks at Talking Stick Preview, Monday 3/11, 3:05 CT

The Cubs try to extend their one-game winning streak! (Hey, that's a stretch. But we need to celebrate the positive as much as possible!)


SCOTTSDALE, Arizona -- A few notes before Monday afternoon's game on another gorgeous day in the Valley:

Cubs lineup:

DeJesus CF, Barney 2B, Schierholtz RF, Soriano LF, Valbuena 3B, Castillo C, Baez SS, Clevenger 1B, Samardzija P 

Diamondbacks lineup:

Eaton CF, Hill 2B, Kubel LF, Goldschmidt 1B, Chavez 3B, Pollock RF, Nieves C, Pennington SS, Cahill P

This afternoon, Jeff Samardzija takes the mound for the Cubs against Arizona's Trevor Cahill. Gameday

Today's game at Mesa will be a webcast on with Len Kasper and Mick Gillispie. The webcast should be online and on the MLB At Bat app around 2:50 p.m. CDT.

Here is the complete Mediacenter for today.

For spring-training games, we'll have a first-pitch thread at game time and one overflow thread, 90 minutes after game time (because I know how you all like overflow threads!). For today, that will be 3 p.m. CT and 4:30 p.m. CT. These threads will not post individually onto the front page; instead, you can find links to them in the box marked "Chicago Cubs Game Threads" at the bottom of the front page. They will also appear in this StoryStream™. The pitcher box and regular-season stats will return on Opening Day.

Discuss amongst yourselves.
