Brandon Finnegan v. Jake Arrieta


The Reds begin a 4 game set tonight against a mighty division rival. Unfortunately, that's the Cubs this time around.

Chicago has Jake Arrieta on the mound tonight, who's picked up right where he left off after a stellar 2015. The Reds counter with Brandon Finnegan, who took a no-no into the 8th the last time these two teams faced off.

Cubs fans will be infiltrating GABP this weekend, so keep your heads on a swivel.

Go Reds! They're my favorite team!
