Cincinnati Reds vs Chicago Cubs
The Cincinnati Reds will send Graham Ashcraft to the mound for his eighth start of the season. In the last game, Ashcraft had his best start of the season, where he allowed only two runs on six hits over eight innings. The talented right-hander has been very effective in his seven appearances this season, and he has a solid 3.27 ERA and 1.09 WHIP. Ashcraft will be facing the Chicago Cubs for the first time.
The Reds are currently on a six-game road trip, winning two of three games against the Giants in San Francisco. Tyler Naquin is currently on the disabled list with a strained right knee.
Second baseman Jonathan India has struggled to find a consistent rhythm at the plate since he returned to the lineup earlier this month. He is currently hitting .159 with six RBIs in June. In the series opener against the Chicago Cubs, India went 2 for 5 with three RBIs.
Cincinnati is currently hitting around 4.32 runs per game, which is good enough for 17th in the league. However, their pitching staff has a 5.32 ERA.
Kyle Hendricks will make his 15th start of the season for the Chicago Cubs on Saturday. He was able to throw a complete game in his previous start against the St. Louis Cardinals, and he was awarded the win after recording a 7.1-strikeout performance.
The veteran right-hander has managed to lower his ERA to 4.90. Hendricks has also posted a 1.30 WHIP in 75.1 innings. In his previous start against the Reds, he allowed four runs in four innings. He has a 7-6 with a 4.47 ERA in 23 career appearances against them.
The struggling pitching staff of the Cubs has been a major factor in their recent struggles. However, they have managed to win their last few games, which is a good sign for the team. The return of some of their injured starters will help improve the team's chances of winning.
In his last five games, Willson Contreras has contributed to Chicago's success. He has been one of the most consistent players in the league, as he has hit 12 home runs this season. He is also 3 for 7 with two RBIs against the Cincinnati Reds.
The offense of the Cubs has been scoring an average of 4.23 runs per game. Their pitching staff is also mediocre, as it is now 26th in the league with a 4.85 ERA.
