Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Here are today’s particulars.

Cubs lineup:

Happ LF, Contreras C, Bryant 3B, Heyward RF, Baez SS, Marisnick CF, Bote 2B, Duffy 1B, Alzolay P

Dodgers lineup:

Betts RF, Seager SS, Turner 3B, Bellinger CF, Smith C, Muncy 1B, Pollock LF, Taylor 2B, May P

Adbert Alzolay will start for the Cubs tonight. Other Cubs pitchers today: Dillon Maples, Ryan Tepera, Brad Wieck, James Norwood, Brendon Little, Juan Gamez and Manuel Rodriguez.

Maples had been on Wednesday’s list but didn’t appear. Guess he’s fine.

Dustin May will start for the Dodgers. Other L.A. pitchers today: Kenley Jansen, Corey Knebel, Blake Treinen, and Scott Alexander.

Today’s game is on Marquee Sports Network, and also live on MLB Network outside the Dodgers and Cubs market territories. Here’s a list of providers currently carrying Marquee. It’s also on 670 The Score. Gameday

Please note that during spring training, Gameday doesn’t usually go pitch-by-pitch as it does during the regular season — usually, it will update after each at-bat.

Here is the complete Mediacenter for today.

Please visit our SB Nation Dodgers site True Blue LA. If you do go there to interact with Dodgers fans, please be respectful, abide by their individual site rules and serve as a good representation of Cub fans in general and BCB in particular.

For spring training games, we’ll have a first-pitch thread at five minutes to 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 8 p.m. CT and 9:30 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. There will also be a StoryStream on the front page with all the game thread links, as well as the recap after the game is over. The pitcher photos and regular-season stats will return on Opening Day.

Discuss amongst yourselves.
