Pre-Gamin’: Reds v. Cubs (7:05 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, etc.

Pre-Gamin'

wrigley field inside featureThe Cubs have dropped two in a row now, and will look to turn things around in this series against the Reds.

Jeff Samardzija goes for the Cubs, and he’s mostly bounced back from that ugly June 1 outing against the Brewers. In the three games since then, Samardzija is posting a 2.84/2.30/2.43 ERA/FIP/xFIP slash line. I remain deeply suspicious about that start in Milwaukee.

Game Info

Cincinnati Reds (37-37) at Chicago Cubs (31-42), 7:05 CT on WCIU.
