Pre-Gamin’: Reds v. Cubs (1:20 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, etc.


The Cubs took down the mighty Reds once already this series, which is about the total I would have expected for all four games. They’ve got three chances to go for the split (and then some).

Justin Germano will look to continue his streak of five-ish innings of decent pitching, and, hey, Josh Vitters gets a start against a righty.

Game Info

Cincinnati Reds (66-46) at Chicago Cubs (44-66), 1:20pm CT on WGN.
