1authorrob3 - New York Mets, Chicago Cubs NLCS Game 3 Lineups, PreviewWhether you’re one of those who actually believe it or not, the New York Mets do, indeed, hold a 2-0 NLCS lead over the Chicago Cubs. And tonight, with the help of ace Jacob deGrom, they’ll look to make the series an almost sure thing.

New York will take on Kyle Hendricks and the Chicago Cubs in Game 3 of the NLCS at classic Wrigley Field.

Hendricks, who has fared pretty well against New York in the past, is a righty. This means Terry Collins will go with his against-righties lineup. Rookie Michael Conforto will be in left-field and hit seventh in the lineup.

Joe Maddon and the Cubs will also throw out their (for the most part) normal lineup against righties.

With deGrom on the mound, the Mets have to feel great about putting a complete stranglehold on the series.

First pitch is slated to come your way at 8:07 PM ET.
