The Cubs go for their second straight series win Monday night in Philadelphia. Dale Sveum's squad has already taken two of three behind some quality starts from Paul Maholm and Matt Garza and a Tony Campana-led offense.

Campana is back in the lineup once again Monday, but with the return of David DeJesus -- who got a day off Sunday -- Campy is back to the No. 2 spot in the order.

Here's the way the Cubs will line up in the series finale:

1. David DeJesus RF
2. Tony Campana CF
3. Starlin Castro SS
4. Bryan LaHair 1B
5. Alfonso Soriano LF
6. Ian Stewart 3B
7. Blake DeWitt 2B
8. Geovany Soto C
9. Chris Volstad P

Pretty standard lineup against a right-handed starter. The only real change is Blake DeWitt in for Darwin Barney, who has been slumping a little of late. Barney is just 1-for-11 in the series, but did have some quality at-bats in Sunday's game.

Soto's return is good news, as his balky back must be feeling better.
