Cubs vs. Reds series preview - On the Horizon

The Cincinnati Reds have claimed Harrison Bader and Hunter Renfroe, adding salary and boosting morale for the team.

In a matchup between the Cincinnati Reds and the Chicago Cubs, there have been some changes to the lineups since their last meeting. Trey Mancini and Eric Hosmer, who were in the Cubs starting lineup, are no longer with the team. Wil Myers, who was the Reds' right fielder, has also moved on. Interestingly, Mancini had a brief stint with the Reds before being let go this week.

The last time these two teams faced each other was earlier this month at Wrigley Field, where the Cubs dominated, winning three out of four games and outscoring the Reds 46-24. It was undoubtedly a fun time for the Cubs.

However, the Reds have shown signs of life despite their recent struggles. The team's front office, which was criticized for their lack of activity at the trade deadline, has made some moves to improve the roster. They claimed Harrison Bader from the Yankees and Hunter Renfroe from the Angels, adding veteran players without giving up prospects. This has not only added talent to the team but has also boosted morale in the dugout.

Despite their setbacks, the Reds are just one game back from securing the final National League Wild Card spot. With their fleet of rookies now bolstered by the new acquisitions, the Reds have a chance to make waves in the upcoming games.

The history between the Reds and the Cubs dates back to April 19, 1890, when they played their first game against each other. Since then, they have faced each other 2,400 times, with the Cubs winning 1,200 games and the Reds winning 1,176. They have tied 22 times. This makes the Cubs-Reds matchup the third most played series for the Cubs, behind the Pirates and the Cardinals.

In the upcoming games, the pitching matchups appear to be slightly favorable for the Cubs. They are also coming off a hot streak, winning 9 out of their last 12 games, while the Reds have struggled, winning only 5 out of their last 12.

Overall, it is predicted that the Cubs will win three out of four games in this series. After the matchup with the Reds, the Cubs will return to Chicago to face the San Francisco Giants in a three-game series.
