The Chicago Cubs and the Cincinnati Reds finish up their three game series on Thursday afternoon at Wrigley Field. These teams should be fighting for positioning in the National League Central all summer so this could be a key game in the final standings.
The Cincinnati Reds really got off to a fast start this season but they look like they are finally coming down to earth. They have lost four games in a row and can’t seem to get anything going at the plate and that has really hurt them.
On the mound for the Reds in this one is rookie Amir Garrett. He comes into this game with a 3-2 record and an ERA of 4.25. His stats look worse then they really are because of one bad start. In five of his last six starts he has given up two runs or less.
The Chicago Cubs haven’t gotten off to the start they would have hoped for this year and come into this game sitting at .500. They have really struggled with their pitching this year and that has hurt their success. Last year they had excellent starting pitching bu that hasn’t been the case this year.
On the mound for the Cubs is Jon Lester who is one of those guys who hasn’t gotten off to a start like he would have. He has a record of 1-2 and an ERA of 3.45.
