      Cubs' Steven Souza: Starting Sunday

      Steven Souza is starting in right field and batting fifth in Sunday's game against the Brewers.Souza went 1-for-2 with a home run Saturday after entering the game as a pinch-hitter, so the Chicago Cubs will reward him with his fifth start of the season.
