It’s a National League Central showdown on Tuesday night at Wrigley Field. The Cincinnati Reds make the trip to Chicago to take on the Cubs.
These two teams have played nine times so far this year with the Cubs winning six of those games.
The Cincinnati Reds downfall all season has been the pitching staff. They come into this game with a team ERA of 5.26 which is the worst in baseball.
This teams offense is 15th in baseball, so if the pitching would have been a bit better this seasoun could have been a bit different.
On the mound for the Reds is Luis Castillo who comes into this game with a 2-5 record and an ERA of 3.73. He hasn’t gotten much run support and that has really hurt his win loss record.
In his last start against the Padres he went six innings giving up six hits and three runs.
On the other side of this match up is the Chicago Cubs who are in quite the battle for the National League Central. They come into this game with a one game lead over the St. Louis Cardinals.
They are slumping a bit coming into this game though having only won four of their last ten games.
On the mound for the Cubs is Kyle Hendricks who comes into this game with a 4-4 record and an ERA of 3.70. In his last start against the Giants he went 4.2 innings giving up five hits and one earned run.
He is going to be a key piece down the stretch for this team, and he needs to start racking up the wins.
