Pre-Gamin’: Cubs at Reds (1:20 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

The last time Jose Quintana faced the Reds (just over a week ago), he lasted just 5.0 IP, allowing 3 earned runs on 6 hits and 1 walk and 4 strikeouts. The last time Tanner Roark faced the Cubs (a couple days before that), he also allowed 3 earned runs over 5.0 innings, but he gave up 8 hits and 1 walk, against 6 strikeouts.

I’m taking the Cubs in the series-decided today.

But to that end … Is it just me, or does it feel like the Cubs have found themselves in rubber matches a lot this season?

By my quick count, it happened against Texas (loss), Milwaukee (loss), Pittsburgh (win), Arizona (win), Arizona again (win), Milwaukee again (win), Cincinnati (loss), Washington (win), and now Cincinnati again. There just hasn’t been a ton of early series wins (and it also technically happened against the Angels, but that series hasn’t been completed yet). Oh, well. Just get it done today. Go Cubs.
