Cincinnati Reds at Chicago Cubs

8:05 PM EDT

Bronson Arroyo vs. John Lackey

The Reds come off of a necessary off day to play the defending champion Cubs. The Reds are actually a game ahead of the Cubs right now in the standings, but are coming off of 3 straight losses on the West Coast.

Bronson Arroyo gets the ball for Cincinnati, who looks like he’s settling in. This Bronson doesn’t look a whole lot different than the Bronson we saw a few years ago. Let’s hope we get the Cubs from a few years ago in this series instead of this year’s version.

On the other side, John Lackey gets the ball. Lackey struck out 10 Rockies in his last start, going 7 shutout innings. Yikes.

Go Reds!
