Radio: WGN 720-AM

Pitching matchups: The Cubs' Chris Volstad (0-8) vs. Mike Leake (4-7) Thursday at 7:05 p.m.; Justin Germano (1-1) vs. Homer Bailey (9-7) Friday at 1:20 p.m.; Travis Wood (4-8) vs. Bronson Arroyo (7-7) Saturday at 3:05 p.m.; Brooks Raley (0-1) vs. Johnny Cueto (14-6) Sunday at 1:20 p.m.

At a glance: The Cubs are 2-3 against the Reds this year, 1-2 at Wrigley Field. They'll meet again next weekend in Cincinnati, with a day-night doubleheader Aug. 18. The Reds have lost four in a row; they were just swept in three games at Milwaukee. Still, they lead the NL Central with a 66-45 record. First baseman Joey Votto (knee) is running again, but he won't come off the disabled list on the Reds' current trip. Jay Bruce leads the Reds in home runs (21) and RBI (67). This series will mark the Wrigley Field debuts of Cubs rookies Raley, center fielder Brett Jackson and third baseman Josh Vitters. Volstad has not won since July 10, 2011, while with the Marlins.

Next: Houston Astros at Wrigley Field, Monday-Wednesday
