Chicago put the first three runs on the board and still dropped its second straight in Cincinnati, 5-3.
Jon Jay and Willson Contreras both homered in the third inning and Eddie Butler continued to hold the Reds scoreless in the bottom half but he came undone in the fourth. Butler walked the eighth batter with the bases loaded and then served up a two-run single to the pitcher that made it 4-3.
Jake Arrieta starts on Sunday. He wasn’t very good in a loss to Max Scherzer earlier this week. It’s been tough to get a feel for how Arrieta will pitch in any particular start this season.
Jackson Stephens ended up getting the win with his own knock that gave himself the lead. He threw a shutdown inning immediately after and finished with eight strikeouts in five innings, allowing three runs. The Reds’ bullpen allowed two hits and a walk in four shutout innings.
Tim Adleman gave up five earned in five innings earlier this week against the Brewers, who hit three home runs against him. But he’s been quite serviceable over the last month-plus. Adleman has gone at least five innings in three of his last six, six innings twice and seven once. He hasn’t had to be lifted in the middle of an inning, either.
In that time, his ERA has dipped by a third of a run, to 4.62.

Free Chicago Cubs vs. Cincinnati Reds MLB Prediction: I really can’t say.
Handicapping the Cubs has been impossible this season. But the moment I start considering them a .500 club, they will rip off 16 out of 20.
