The Cubs are feeling good after walking off over St. Louis Monday night, thanks to Cardinal product Joe Mather's two-out, two run single.

This is the way they'll lineup Tuesday against Adam Wainwright, whom they bombarded in St. Louis 11 days ago:

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. Darwin Barney 2B
8. Geovany Soto C
9. Jeff Samardzija P

Campana may very well be entrenched in that two-hole against right-handers. His speed is a huge asset and he can make things happen at the top of the order. If he ever reaches, he can immediately get into scoring position ahead of the heart of the order, a la Juan Pierre in his prime.

Stewart and LaHair are back in the starting lineup after sitting out most of Monday's contest against left-handed starter Jaime Garcia. LaHair had a great at-bat in the ninth to draw a walk after fouling off a bunch of tough pitches and wound up scoring the tying run ahead of Soto.
