Cincinnati Reds @ Chicago Cubs

Tuesday, April 14, 2015
Wrigley Field

Anthony DeSclafani v. Jake Arrieta


Disco tries to stop the bleeding tonight.

He'll face the Cubs for the second time in his career, but the first time at Wrigley. With the Marlins last year, he gave up 4 runs in 6 1/3 innings in his 3rd career start, but ended up with the no-decision in Miami. His first start of this year went well, so the Reds would like for him to build on that.

He'll face Jake Arrieta, who you may remember from the one hit shutout he threw against the Reds in the last time he faced them. He threw 7 shutout innings against the Cards in his first start of the year. What a jerk.

Go Reds!
