Soriano benched for tonight's game.

Tyler Colvin gets the start tonight in left field and will bat 6th as the Cubs conclude their opening series this season against the Braves.

Other notable changes in tonight's lineup:

Our lord and savior, Koyie Hill, will be batting 8th and catching. Jeff Baker also gets the start tonight at second and bats 7th.

With the exception of the two homers in game 1, one by Byrd and the other by Ramirez, the Cubs offensive has been quite flat. Hopefully this shuffling will spark a little something.

Randy Wells will face Tommy Hanson tonight. Both of these guys had outstanding rookie seasons last year. This should be a fun match-up. As much as we praised Wells last season, Hanson was better. Hanson finished 3rd in the Rookie of the Year voting. (Wells was 6th.)

Time for our first win!
