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

Chicago Cubs

It’s time for Marcus Stroman’s last start of the season and the Cubs last game at Wrigley Field in 2022!

Stroman is coming off three straight quality starts and a solid six-game stretch overall: 36.0 IP, 2.50 ERA, 51.5 groundball%, 85.1 MPH average exit velocity (whoa!), and just a 5.8% barrel rate. He has absolutely held opposing batters in check in vintage Stroman fashion (contact management), while the strikeout numbers are kinda blah (sub-20%).

Stroman has faced the Reds just once this season, but it was all the way back on May 24: 5.0 IP, 4H, 2ER, 2BB, 8Ks.

Chase Anderson will be the one standing in the way of a seven-game winning streak, as he takes the mound for the Reds in just his seventh start of the season. His most recent five starts have been short, but effective: 20.2 IP, 2.18 ERA. He’s striking out plenty of batters during that stretch (26.9%), but walking a ton too (11.5%).

Go Cubs.
