Greene Needs to be Good

Getting the start for the Reds will be Hunter Greene and he sits with a 3-2 record and an ERA of 3.44. In his last start against the Chicago Cubs he went six innings giving up three hits and five runs. Two starts ago against the Los Angeles Dodgers he went six innings giving up five hits and one run. 

Chicago Cubs vs Cincinnati Reds Prediction

Greene’s last start came against the Cubs, and he gave up five runs in that game. The Cubs are averaging 4.33 runs per game, but they are going to have no issue running up the score here. The Reds' offense has been better overall, but they are going to struggle here. Greene is going to give up five or six runs here again, and that is going to be the difference as the Cubs will come out on top. Back the Cubs.
