Dylan Axelrod v. Jake Arrieta
I'm not one for moral victories, but taking this series with the Cubs would do wonders for this team right now. The offense showed signs of life last night.
They'll have awkward teenager Dylan Axelrod on the mound, who pitched well in his other Reds start. He gave up 2 runs in 6 innings in that game, but the bullpen blew it so he didn't get a decision.
He'll face Jake Arrieta, who has been awesome. He's due for a rough outing, right?
