Reds at Cubs, Game 2: Preview/Predictions Thread

With Scott Feldman set to face Kyle Hendricks in the pitching matchup, the over/under now sits at 11 runs.

Cubs manager Joe Maddon paired his 1,000th win with a glass of red wine made by Big Smooth wines out of Lodi, California. "It's a hard place to pitch when the wind's blowing the way it is, and their guys just did a better job of keeping the ball in the park than we did". "I've been taught well, and I really want to say, it's 1,000 wins, other guys have done it, but to the players that have been a part of this, I want to say thank you, because you don't do this without really good players".

Anthony Rizzo and Kyle Schwarber drove in two runs apiece, and the Chicago Cubs handed the sloppy Cincinnati Reds their season-high fifth straight loss with a 7-5 victory on Wednesday night.

Hendricks (3-2) allowed two runs on six hits, all over the first three innings.

McIlroy to undergo test on troublesome back
Jon Rahm continues to play at a high level no matter the course or conditions. Willett followed an opening 79 with a 40 during his first nine holes Friday.

Chicago Cubs star Kris Bryant broke his bat on a lineout to Cincinnati Reds pitcher Scott Feldman in the first inning Wednesday night. The Cubs are 21-6 in their last 28 Thursday games, 1-6 in their last 7 during game 3 of a series and 19-8 in Lesters last 27 starts.

"He's a great manager, a great one to play for, and we know that we have his back and he'll have ours", Schwarber said.

To put his outing in perspective, as soon as he left the game, Mike Montgomery got tagged for three runs in the seventh - ending his streak of consecutive scoreless innings at 18.

After Votto's two-run shot got Cincinnati (19-19) within two in the seventh, Russell went deep in the bottom half and Rizzo added his seventh of the season in the eighth. Offensively, Zack Cozart leads the Reds with 42 hits and 17 RBI while Billy Hamilton and Joey Votto have combined for 82 hits and 48 RBI. Right-hander Lisalverto Bonilla will start Friday in the opener of three-game set at home against Colorado.

'Dr Phil' to air interview with Aaron Hernandez's fiancee
Shayanna Jenkins-Hernandez told an interviewer this week she doesn't trust the reports of her fiancée's suicide. Hernandez was serving a life sentence in a MA prison after being convicted of the murder of Odin Lloyd in 2013.

"Too many pitches, bad command tonight, so I've got some stuff to work on and iron it out for next times", Feldman said.

"That was not a way to end the ballgame unless they can show us something definitively", Price said. Rizzo's two-run single went off the glove of second baseman Jose Peraza in shallow right field, helping the Cubs open a 5-1 lead. Hendricks drove in Zobrist with a well-placed sacrifice bunt, and Jon Jay added an RBI single. The lights for the first couple of letters were out for the whole game.

Reds starter Bronson Arroyo (3-3) pitched five innings and allowed five runs, eight hits, two walks and struck out one while giving up two home runs. Chicago RHP Wade Davis has not allowed a home run in relief in his last 64 1/3 innings since September 24, 2015, the second-longest major league streak behind Baltimore LHP Zach Britton's 72-inning stretch.
