CLEVELAND - Kyle Schwarber is in the Cubs starting lineup for the first time since April 7. It just so happens to also be the Cubs' first World Series starting lineup since 1945. The Cubs released Joe Maddon's Game 1 lineup against Corey Kluber and the Cleveland Indians Tuesday afternoon ahead of a historic World Series matchup. Schwarber is hitting fifth at DH: 1. Dexter Fowler - CF 2. Kris Bryant - 3B 3. Anthony Rizzo - 1B 4. Ben Zobrist - LF 5. Kyle Schwarber - DH 6. Javy Baez - 2B 7. Chris Coghlan - RF 8. Addison Russell - SS 9. David Ross - C And Jon Lester is on the mound. Schwarber is already the Cubs' all-time leader in postseason homers with five longballs in last season's playoff run. *[SHOP: Buy a "Try Not to Suck" shirt with proceeds benefiting Joe Maddon's Respect 90 Foundation & other Cubs Charities ]* Coghlan in the lineup is also a surprise as defensive stalwart Jason Heyward gets the boot to the bench for the second straight game. The Cubs put Albert Almora Jr. in right field at Wrigley Saturady night when they beat Clayton Kershaw and locked up the NLCs. Heyward is hitting .071 with a .312 OPS in the postseason, collecting only two hits and a walk in 10 games. Coghlan has appeared in five games - all as a pinch-hitter - and is 0-for-4 with a walk and a run. The Cubs have scored 23 runs in the last three games after being shut out in 21 straight innings prior to that.  http://www.korkedbaseball.com/collections/maddonisms-series
