The Cubs will open a three-game set with the Miami Marlins Tuesday night in South Beach.

Here's they way they will line up against Marlins ace Josh Johnson:

1. David DeJesus RF
2. Darwin Barney 2B
3. Starlin Castro SS
4. Alfonso Soriano LF
5. Ian Stewart 3B
6. Steve Clevenger C
7. Bryan LaHair 1B
8. Marlon Byrd CF
9. Ryan Dempster P

Clevenger is getting the start behind home plate, giving Geovany Soto two full days off with no game on Monday. Clevenger is killing the ball, with hits in six of his first 10 at-bats. He is also 2-0 as a starter, so that could bode well for the Cubs tonight.
