Pre-Gamin'

Chris Rusin, like Justin Germano before him, has his sights set on a rotation job in 2013, and wants to solidify his spot *in the competition* this month. Even a light’s out September, though, won’t guarantee anything. This is like the audition for the audition.

Darwin Barney’s 13-game hitting streak has him up in the two-hole.

Game Info

Cincinnati Reds (89-59) at Chicago Cubs (58-90), 7:05 CT on CSN.
