It’s a National League Central showdown on Friday night in Cincinatti. The Chicago Cubs come to town to take on Reds. The Cubs have won five of the last six meetings between the two teams.
The Chicago Cubs probably aren’t particularly happy with the start they have had to their season but they have been playing better as of late.
They come into this game having won their last two games, and it looks like their bats have finally woken up.
In each of their last two wins they have had to use late comebacks to win the game. To win this game they need to keep their hot bats going.
When they have lost this season it has seemed to be because of their bats, and that can’t happen again in this game.
The Reds come into this game in first place in the National League Central, and sit a game ahead of the Chicago Cubs.
Now they probably won’t finish the season in first place, but it is encouraging to see them starting off the season so strong.
To win this game they need to get to Jake Arrieta early.
If he settles into a grove it might be a long night for the Reds. They also need to get a good a good pitching performance from Finnegan.
He needs to at least get a quality start for the Reds for them to have any shot.
