Cincinnati vs. Chicago: MLB National League Money Line Call
Our focus is on Major League Baseball today as we check in on National League action from the Windy City. The Cincinnati Reds are looking to complete a four-game sweep of the crashing Chicago Cubs.
In addition to breaking out the brooms, the Reds are also aiming for their 13th straight win over the Cubs at Wrigley Field. This matinee action has its first pitch slated for 2:20 PM EDT on Thursday, June 13, 2013.
Cincinnati Reds: Own second best National League record
Sitting with a 40-26 record, Cincinnati is sandwiched in the middle of a heated battle with the St. Louis Cardinals (42-23) and Pittsburgh Pirates (39-26) in the amazing race that’s taking place in the National League Central Division. Those three clubs join the Boston Red Sox as the only teams in the Majors who currently hold a .600 or better win percentage. RHP Mat Latos (6-0 ERA 2.87) who hasn’t suffered a loss since August 24, 2012, heads to the bump today. Latos is 10-0 in his last 20 starts – a Reds all-time club record for regular season starts without a loss – wow!
Chicago Cubs: Playoff hopes will be dashed before the All-Star break
It’s a good thing that the Blackhawks have cranked it up in the Windy City because it’s going to be another long season for both of the baseball clubs in Chicago. The Cubs are 16 games out of first place in the NL Central while the White Sox are 7.5 games back in the AL Central – both clubs are in last place in their respective divisions. Dating back to September 13, 2011, the Cubs are 25-6 against Cincinnati and they have dropped the first three games of this series by a 20-5 combined count. RHP Jeff Samardzjla (3-7 ERA 3.18) gets the call to the hill for the North Siders today.
