Raisel Iglesias v. Jason Hammel

Just don't get swept, I guess.

I hope this series isn't a whole heaping dose of "the Reds are who we thought they were", but things haven't gone their way so far and the Cubs are playing loose, confident baseball. The Reds have Raisel on the mound, so this should be their best chance to shut down the Cub bats.

Jason Hammel goes for Chicago, making his second start of the year. He shut down the D-Backs in Arizona to the tune of 6 innings and only one run given up.

Go Reds! They're my favorite team!
