Cubs vs. Cincinnati Reds at Great American Ball Park
TV: WCIU Monday; Comcast SportsNet Tuesday and Wednesday
Radio: WGN 720-AM
Pitching matchups: The Cubs' Matt Garza (2-4) vs. Chad Reineke (0-1) Monday at 6:10 p.m.; TBD vs. Mike Leake (4-2) Tuesday at 6:10 p.m.; Ryan Dempster (4-5) vs. Bronson Arroyo (4-5) Wednesday at 11:35 a.m.
At a glance: The Reds may juggle their rotation and go with Leake on Monday and Edinson Volquez on Tuesday. The Cubs dropped two poorly played games to the Reds in Cincinnati May 16-17. At Wrigley Field in early May, the Reds took two of three from the Cubs. The Reds haven't been so hot lately, either. They lost 9-6 to the Dodgers on Sunday to fall back to .500 at 30-30. The Cubs are 23-34 and sinking fast. Garza is coming off the DL (bone bruise, elbow) to pitch Monday. He gave up 3 unearned runs against the Reds on May 17 in a 7-5 Cubs loss.
