Mike Leake vs Carlos Villanueva
Mostly cloudy,rain. Winds blowing in from center field at 10-15 m.p.h. Game time temperature around 55.
At least that series is overwith. The Reds head to Wrigley to play a series against the Cublegs. Mike Leake gets us started, coming off of an outing where he really struggled. He left in the first 3 innings against the Nats, but hopefully the Cubs will help. Maybe they won't though, as Leake has a career 4.66 ERA at Wrigley and has given up more home runs there (6) than he has in any other road location.
He faces Carlos Villanueva, who you may remember from going into the 9th inning in Cincinnati last week and beating the Reds. He had arguably his worst start of the season against the Marlins last time out, so there may be some hope there.
The bullpen is pretty rested because of the off day, so expect to see Mike Leake on a pretty short leash this afternoon.
This gets underway early, so post your predictions here. Go Reds!
