Cubs go for the sweep as Bronson Arroyo matches up against the Cubs' new #4 starter.
Lilly was hit hard in his only start against the Reds this year (6 H, 5 ER in 6 IP), a loss back in mid-April; Arroyo, who seemed to be starting against the Cubs every time you turned around last season, going 0-3, 3.58 in five outings, is making his first appearance against the Wrigleys in 2008.
If Lilly emerges the winner this afternoon, the Cubs will have a trio of 10-game winners at the All-Star break for the first time since 1969, when four guys—Jenkins (13-7), Hands (11-8), Holtzman (11-5), and reliever Phil Regan (10-5)—hit the mark.
Of course, we all know how well that worked out.
