A night game at Wrigley, huh? Anything to get the taste of last night out of our mouths.

The Reds hope to turn their tides behind Homer Bailey, who actually got his last win against the Cubs at home. In that game, he went 6 innings and gave up 2 runs with 8 strikeouts. He's actually better at Wrigley throughout his career, with a 3.20 ERA in 4 starts.

He'll face Scott Feldman, who gave up 5 runs in 5 1/3 innings last time he faced the Reds. He's had two quality starts since then, so let's hope the Reds prove to be his weakness.

With last night's debacle, the bullpen could use 8 innings from Homer tonight.
