The Cincinnati Reds (53-74) will try to avoid being swept at GABP to the Chicago Cubs (68-57) tonight at 7:10. The Reds pitching has allowed 22 runs through the first two games. The Reds will send rookie Sal Romano to the mound tonight.
Sal Romano is coming off a terrific start on Sunday in Atlanta: 7.0 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 3 K. He will get a much bigger test tonight, as he will face the Cubs for the first time in his career.
Jake Arrieta is on quite the roll. In each of his last 7 starts, he has gone 6+ innings, and allowed 2 ER or less. Arrieta has a 2.00 ERA/3.49 FIP in the second half. His last start against the Reds came on 7/2, and it was a beauty: 7.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 6 K.
