The Chicago Cubs and Cincinnati Reds face off on Sunday in a National League Central showdown. On Saturday the Cubs won the first game, but in game two the Reds got some revenge winning 6-5. 

The Cubs were playing some really good baseball early in the season but as of late there have been some more struggles losing two of their last four games. One o f the big issues for the Cubs is their offense has been inconsistent at times and in this game they need a good outing from Tyler Chatwood. In the second game on Saturday Ian Happ and David Bote both drove in two runs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Reds whos offense has been an issue most of the season but in the second game on Saturday they were able to score two runs. In four of the last five games the Reds have scored six runs. Nick Castellanos has been the best offensive player this season for the Reds driving in 23 runs and hitting 10 home runs.
