9/21/2018 @ CHI WHITE SOX  
CINCINNATI: 2017 68-94, fifth place
MANAGER Bryan Price (fifth season)
ADDITIONS: RHP Jared Hughes, RHP David Hernandez
SUBTRACTIONS: SS Zack Cozart, RHP Bronson Arroyo, RHP Tim Adleman
OUTLOOK: The Reds launched into a major rebuild in 2015 and have lost at least 90 games for three consecutive seasons while finishing last in the NL Central all three years. They locked up Suarez through 2024 with a $66 million contract during spring training -- their first significant deal during the rebuild -- but are still at least a year away from looking for an upgrade through free agency. The everyday lineup will score enough runs to keep games competitive, but pitching is the sore point again. It would be considered a breakthrough simply to move out of last place.
CHICAGO CUBS: 017 92-70, first place, lost to Dodgers in NLCS
MANAGER Joe Maddon (fourth season)
ADDITIONS: RHP Yu Darvish, RHP Brandon Morrow, RHP Tyler Chatwood, RHP Steve Cishek, LHP Drew Smyly, C Chris Gimenez
SUBTRACTIONS: RHP Wade Davis, C Alex Avila, C Rene Rivera, RHP Jake Arrieta, RHP John Lackey
OUTLOOK: World Series or bust. The acquisition of Darvish, who finalized a $126 million, six-year contract in February, gives Chicago a strong rotation, and the lineup is young, deep and dangerous. A franchise-record six players (Rizzo, Schwarber, Bryant, Happ, Baez and Contreras) belted at least 20 home runs last year, including a major league-record five in an age 25 or younger season. Chicago also scored more than 800 runs in consecutive seasons for the first time since the team surpassed that mark for three consecutive years from 1929-1931. The Cubs have made it to the NL Championship Series for three consecutive seasons, winning it all in 2016 to end a 108-year drought, and there's no reason to think they won't be in the mix for another title this year.
Cubs return home to face Reds

CHICAGO - The Chicago Cubs will return home after a one-day road trip that may leave them weary after a long but satisfying win.

The Cubs, who were forced to travel to Washington to face the Nationals after a weekend washout, will enter Friday's series opener against the Cincinnati Reds on a winning note after a 10-inning, 4-3 victory.

After seeing their lead shrink to one game by losing two of three to the second-place Milwaukee Brewers, the Cubs will face the Reds with a 1 1/2-game lead in the National League Central. And as much as the Cubs dreaded losing an off-day Thursday for the sake of a make-up game, manager Joe Maddon won't use the current stretch of 30 consecutive days without an off-day as an excuse.

"It's just a tough stretch, man," Maddon said this weekend, according to NBC Sports Chicago. "Fatigue is nasty. When you get a tired mind, it's not easy to play at your top level. It's just not. We all know what it's like when you feel like your brain is swimming a little bit."

The Cubs' victory Thursday provided a bit of breathing room after they entered Thursday's game having lost four of their previous five games. Despite needing extra innings to get back on a winning track, the Cubs realize even facing the last-place Reds won't be easy as they try to hold on to their lead in the National League Central.

Because of Thursday's trip to Washington, the start time of Friday's game was pushed back from 1:20 p.m. CT to 7:05 p.m.

Cole Hamels will take the mound for the Cubs, looking to extend what's been an impressive start to his stint with the Cubs. Hamels (9-9, 3.71 ERA) has not lost since joining the Cubs and is coming off back-to-back no-decisions after racking up a 4-0 record in August. Hamels has dominated the Reds throughout his career with an 11-1 record and a 1.86 ERA in 16 career starts against Cincinnati.

In his one start against the Reds this season, Hamels got a complete-game victory, allowing eight hits and two walks but one run in Chicago's 7-1 victory Aug. 23.

The Reds will enter the series having won four of their past six games. Cincinnati took two of three against the Los Angeles Dodgers this week but failed to finish off the sweep, taking an 8-1 loss Wednesday before having Thursday off.

Matt Harvey will start the series for the Reds after sticking with Cincinnati despite clearing waivers. Harvey (7-8, 4.87) has only one win in his last four starts, but that win came in his last outing -- a victory against the San Diego Padres in which he surrendered two runs and four hits over six innings.

In that game, Harvey struck out 10, which was his first double-digit strikeout effort in more than two years. Now, he will look to continue to roll against the Cubs on Friday.

"It was just one of those days when everything was coming out pretty good," Harvey said after the outing, according to Cincinnati.com. "I pretty much let the pitches work."

Harvey is 2-1 with a 3.72 ERA in seven career starts against Chicago. He has started three games against the Cubs this year and is 1-0 with a 2.65 ERA.
