Pre-Gamin’: Cubs at Reds (6:10 CT) – Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Cubs

Happy Jake Day!

Jake Arrieta is taking the mound for the Cubs in Cincinnati tonight, facing one of the most potent offenses in baseball in terms of runs scored per game.

Jesse Winker (199 wRC+) and Nick Castellanos (160 wRC+) are leading the way, but Tyler Naquin (146 wRC+, 6 homers), Tyler Stephenson (145 wRC+), Tucker Barnhart (143 wRC+), and Mike Moustakas (128 wRC+) are all hitting well too. It’ll be a tough matchup for Arrieta, even if he has looked good lately.

Oh, and he did throw a no-hitter here once, a game caught by his new manager, David Ross. So that’s fun. Also fun? The Cubs insane lineup with Nico Hoerner in left field. Go Cubs.
