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.
Cubs attempt to prevent sweep by Reds

It was unheard of not that long ago, but now it has become somewhat commonplace: pitchers by committee.

A manager begins a game not with a starting pitcher but a reliever -- and with more relievers to follow.

Cubs manager Joe Maddon, certainly not a stranger to taking a risk, tried it Saturday with poor results against a suddenly hot team that's not playing like a last-place club.

Don't look for him to make the same mistake Sunday.

Maddon will run out one of his regular starters, right-hander Tyler Chatwood (3-5), at Great American Ball Park to try to avoid a four-game sweep by the Cincinnati Reds, who are playing nothing like the tail-ending team they've been all season.

The Reds mounted their second six-game win streak of the year -- the first time they've done that since 2012 -- by making quick work of the Cubs' starter-by-committee plans Saturday during an 11-2 victory keyed by the pitching of right-hander Anthony DeSclafani.

And, remarkably, keyed by the hitting of DeSclafani, who hit the Reds' seventh grand slam in 33 days and their third of the week, but the first by a Cincinnati pitcher since Bob Purkey against the Cubs on Aug. 1, 1959.

DeSclafani (3-1) posted his third win in a row while giving up two runs and three hits in 6 1/3 innings.

Cubs reliever-turned-starter Luke Farrell (2-3) was long gone by then, having been lifted with only a 2-1 deficit and two outs in the third inning. The Reds went on to score eight more runs against the Cubs' bullpen -- and catcher Chris Gimenez, who pitched the eighth inning.

DeSclafani's shot came with two outs in the third inning against left-hander Brian Duensing, and it was a no-doubt drive well up into the left-field stands.

"All in all, I was trying to hit the ball hard somewhere and not strike out," said DeSclafani, who came into the game with a .138 career batting average. "I knew a fastball was coming and I tried to square it up, and it happened to go out. ... It was awesome. It all happened so quick."

And slowly the Reds, once 8-27, are starting to play the way they expected when the season started. They've won nine of 11 and are 5-0 on their current six-game homestand.

"When you get down in the standings, it can be deflating," said Reds interim manager Jim Riggleman, who replaced Bryan Price during the terrible start. "But they kept coming to the ballpark and working hard, and now we're getting closer to respectability in the standings, though we're not there yet."

The Cubs' domination of the Reds is disappearing, too - going into the series, they'd won 43 of 62 against them in the last four seasons -- as quickly as DeSclafani's homer reached the seats.

"We're playing clean baseball -- we've run the bases, made plays ... are getting timely hits," Riggleman said. "We have a nice string of well-played games."

This probably isn't encouraging to the Cubs' faithful, either. Chatwood is 0-4 with a 4.18 ERA in five career appearances against the Reds. He has walked 63 batters in 68 1/3 innings this season.

Despite Chatwood's lack of success against the Reds, only Joey Votto (2-for-10, .200) has double-digit at-bats against him.

Chatwood opposes right-hander Sal Romano (4-7), who is coming off his best start of the season -- seven shutout innings against the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday. Romano gave up four hits and struck out six despite walking four in a 9-5 Reds victory in which the Tigers scored all of their runs in the ninth inning.

Romano's last start against the Cubs wasn't a good one. He surrendered seven runs and six hits in five innings of a 10-0 Chicago victory on May 19. He is 0-1 against them in two career games.

Maddon gave Kris Bryant the day off Saturday after he went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in the Reds' 6-3 win Friday as he tries to get some of the slumping hitters going. Bryant is likely to be in the lineup Sunday against Romano.

"We've got to get (Willson) Contreras going, we've got to get KB (Bryant) and (Anthony Rizzo) going," Maddon said. "I mean, these were our primary offensive weapons last year, and they really haven't hit their stride yet."
