LOS ANGELES — Cubs manager Joe Maddon has made some changes in Chicago's starting lineup for Game 3 of the National League Championship Series, dropping slumping outfielder Jason Heyward.
The Cubs and Los Angeles Dodgers are tied at 1-all going into Tuesday's game.
Heyward is 1 for 6 in the first two games of the series. He has been replaced by Jorge Soler, who is 0 for 2 in the NLCS.
Rizzo is hitless in eight at-bats so far in the series, while Russell is 0 for 7.
"I just thought rearranging the chairs a little bit might help," Maddon said.
