That was a fun road trip, eh? The Reds come home to the Cubs with Bronson Arroyo on the hill. Bronson's been historically pretty good against the Chubbies, with a career 2.99 ERA in 26 starts. He also is on a bit of a hot streak, with two scoreless starts in a row, so another one would be just what the doctor ordered.

They face Scott Feldman, who curiously enough, has never faced Cincinnati. Weird, right? This is his first year in the NLC, after a few years with the Rangers. Feldman's coming off of 5 quality starts in a row, including a scoreless one last time out, so he won't be a cake walk.

With the off day, everyone should be pretty rested. Go Reds! They're my favorite home team!
