Wrigley Field Has Not Been Kind To The Reds

The Cincinnati Reds aren’t exactly lighting the world on fire this season and more mediocrity may be on the way when they open a series against the Chicago Cubs on Monday. The Reds have lost six straight games at Wrigley Field while being outscored 45-20.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in 10 of the Reds’ last 13 games against the Cubs.
  • The Reds are 1-8 SU in their last 9 games against left-handed starting pitchers.
  • The total has gone OVER in each of the Reds’ past 8 games.

Asher Wojciechowski will make his third consecutive start for the Reds after back-to-back solid outings. Wojciechowski has given up plenty of hits in his past two starts but has limited opponents to plating just four runs in 10.2 innings. The righty has been better used out of the bullpen this season but the Reds don’t have many options in the rotation.

Jose Quintana seems to be regressing to the norm after a blistering start to his tenure with the Cubs. The southpaw has allowed nine earned runs and three home runs in his past two trips to the bump. This may be a concern for Quintana, as the Reds have quietly been slugging .439 on the season.
