KEY GAME INFORMATION
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.
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.
PREVIEW
Reds turn tide in series with Cubs
 

Not that long ago, the Chicago Cubs probably viewed a series against the Cincinnati Reds as a near-guaranteed way to pick up some quick victories and gain some ground in the National League Central standings.

Those days have changed. And so is the Cubs-Reds rivalry.

The Cubs couldn't hold a multi-run lead for the second straight night, and the Reds won their fifth in a row and eighth in 10 games -- quite a run for a team that played .250 ball for the first month-plus of the season -- by rallying for a 6-3 victory on Friday night.

Now, the Cubs are expected to ask their bullpen to carry them through the third game of the four-game series Saturday at Great American Ball Park -- a series that isn't going much like most of those Cubs-Reds matchups for the last four seasons.

Going into the series, the Cubs were 43-19 against the Reds since 2015, but the Reds are playing much differently now than they did when they were 8-27 on May 7. They're 4-0 on their current homestand, even though they still remain well below .500 at 30-45.

"Even when we were losing, they (his veteran players) felt like, 'We're a good ballclub, we're going to get our share (of wins),'" Reds interim manager Jim Riggleman said. "(When) we're on a roll like this, they feel like we're just going to keep going with it."

Eugenio Suarez lifted his average to .304 by going 3-for-4 with a go-ahead two-run homer in the fifth inning off Jose Quintana (6-6) and Joey Votto had two hits and an RBI. Quintana gave up four runs and nine hits in five innings.

"We're playing really good baseball," Suarez said. "We've got to keep doing what we're doing -- and keep winning. If we play like this, something good is going to happen."

The Cubs scored three times against Reds starter Luis Castillo (5-8) in 5 2/3 innings -- Kyle Schwarber hit a two-run homer in the fourth -- but former Cleveland Indians pitcher Kyle Crockett pitched out of a two-on jam in the sixth in his Reds debut.

The Cubs managed only four hits in the game, David Hernandez pitched two scoreless innings and Raisel Iglesias finished in the ninth for his 12th save.

The Cincinnati bullpen has pitched 6 1/3 scoreless innings in the series so far.

"That was one of the cleaner games we're played -- offensively, defensively, we ran the bases well ... and got timely hits," Riggleman said. "When you do that, you're probably going to win."

Now, the Reds have the improving Anthony DeSclafani (2-1) pitching Saturday. The right-hander missed the first two months of the season with an oblique injury after sitting out all of last season with an elbow injury, but he has won his last two starts while lowering his ERA from 7.60 to 4.20.

He's 2-2 in seven career starts against the Cubs, and he handles Chicago cleanup hitter Anthony Rizzo (2-for-20, .100) especially well.

It's expected to be a bullpen game for the Cubs, with former Reds pitcher Luke Farrell (2-2) making his first start of the season and only the second of his major league career. The longest he has pitched this season was five shutout relief innings during the Cubs' 7-1, 14-inning victory over the New York Mets on June 2.

Cubs manager Joe Maddon stayed with his recent experiment of using slugger Kris Bryant as a leadoff hitter -- he was 9-for-24 (.375) with three RBIs in that spot going into the game -- but he went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts.

"He gets on base a lot, he's possibly one of the best baserunners on the team," Maddon told reporters. "It's one of those things -- preconceived notions -- that you get hung up on. But I like what he's doing. When the bottom of the order has been productive, there's a potential for a lot of baserunners in the one-hole."

Only there wasn't any such potential Friday as the Cubs' No. 7-8-9 batters were a combined 0-for-9. It also didn't help that Rizzo went 0-for-4 and stranded three runners.

And, now, suddenly the Cubs-Reds rivalry isn't what it used to be.
