The Chicago Cubs and Cincinnati Reds face off on Wednesday in an MLB showdown at the Great American Ballpark. On Tuesday it was the Reds that were able to secure the 3-2 victory. 

The Reds come into this game with a 62-99 record overall but with a win in this game they can close their season out with three straight wins. The Reds offense overall is averaging 4.01 runs per game which is 22nd best in the league. Kyle Farmer has had a nice season for the Reds hitting 14 home runs and driving in 78 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Cubs who sit with a 73-88 record overall and they have lost two games in a row against the Reds. The pitching has been good over the last two games, but they have scored only three runs total. The Cubs offense overall this season is averaging 3.99 runs per game which is 23rd in the league. The pitching is also ranked 21st, but has been better the last two games.

On the mound for the Cubs is Adrian Sampson who sits with a 4-5 record and an ERA of 3.10. In his last start against the Reds, he went seven innings giving up three hits and one run. 

On the mound for the Reds will be Graham Ashcraft who sits with a 5-5 record and an ERA of 4.52. In his last start against the Chicago Cubs, he went 2.2 innings giving up six hits and six runs. 

The Cubs are 4-0 in Sampson’s last four starts. The over is 6-0-1 in Ashcraft’s last seven home starts. The over is 2-0-2 in Ashcraft’s last four starts on grass. The Reds are 0-4 in Ashcraft’s last four starts. 

The Reds have won the last two games, but the Cubs are going to get the job done here. Sampson in his last start gave up only one run, and the Cubs have won his last four starts. I expect the Reds bats to be ice cold here, and that will be the difference as the Cubs get the job done.
