Just a few switches from the opening game with Gavin Lux on the bench and Hanser Alberto at second base. With Austin Barnes catching the opener, Will Smith takes over behind the plate for the second game.

Daniel Norris, with all of 6 IP this season, will open the game for the Cubs. While he’s struck out 8 in his five appearances, Norris has allowed a pair of homers. That’s about as far as I am going to go on Norris since he won’t be around long in a bullpen game for the Cubs.

First pitch is at 4:40 PM on SNLA.
