Cincinnati Reds at Chicago Cubs

2:20 PM ET

Robert Stephenson vs. Jose Quintana

Nothing at stake in this series, so it should be an opportunity for a few Reds to get a run-out to end the season. The Cubs have already clinched the NL Central, the Reds are already out of playoff contention.

The Reds will give a final start of the season to Robert Stephenson, a player who after a rocky start to the season, has come on to make himself a serious contender for a rotation spot in 2018. He’s been a lot more comfortable over the past few months, and just goes to show how important “rebuilding” seasons are.

Go Reds!
