A Closer Look at the Cincinnati Reds at Chicago Cubs MLB Odds Preview, Pick & Game InfoDate/Time: Tuesday, September 1st, 8:05 PM Venue: Wrigley Field, Chicago, IL TV: WGN Radio: Cubs Radio Network, WBBM 780 Opening line: Chicago Cubs -155 Dan Haren (8-9, 3.90 ERA) has not been at his best since coming over from Miami, and will be looking to improve as the regular season draws to a close. It has been a miserable year for the Cincinnati Reds (53-76), and they are on a losing streak right now that they cannot seem to dig out of. They have won only 2 of their last 16 games, and have been swept on 3 separate occasions during that run. Their only wins during this period have come in a make-up game versus the Tigers, and a 12-9 win over the Brewers that helped them avoid yet another sweep. There is no telling just how bad things are going to get before the regular season mercifully draws to a close for the Reds, as their closing schedule features a ton of games against teams that are in the playoffs right now. Anthony DeSclafani (7-10, 3.84 ERA) will start, and will be trying to avoid losing his 4th straight game.
