Cubs @ Reds: Hendricks vs. Roark (Game 39)
CHC: RHP Kyle Hendricks (2-4, 3.19 ERA)
CIN: RHP Tanner Roark (3-1, 3.27 ERA)
First pitch 5:40pmCDT
Hendricks has been fantastic in his last two starts. He followed up his 81-pitch shutout with an eight inning start allowing 1 unearned run. Watch out for Joey Votto, 8-18 against Hendricks but cold to start the year.
Tanner Roark has been pretty good in his first 8 starts of 2019. Last time out he pitched 6 shutout innings allowing three hits and two walks against the A's. He's been solid against the current Cubs, who have a .653 collective OPS in 95 ABs. Kris Bryant is 5-11 with a homer against him.
Sorry for the belated post!

Credit to Mills bouncing back strong - fifth straight quality start by the rotation certainly helps things. Yu for the series win tomorrow

Throws strikes like Chatwood. Holds runners like Darvish.

lorenzen is low-key one of the most exciting players in the game, seriously. he's fun on the mound, at the plate, and baserunning.

Well that settles it: Lorenzen is a better base runner than Brach. Brach haint got nuttin’

rizzo's power outage has been a little alarming. it seems to be bad luck more than anything obvious, though.

Near warning track power Rizzo not nearly as fun as home run derby Rizzo

More rare sighting in last few weeks: a Descalso plate appearance or a Rizzo home run? Descalso PA wins by an eyelash
Descalso actually had one his better at bats (even though he should have been rung up on a missed strike three) — a line drive one hopper to the shortstop

they're celebrating the 69 cubs at the park tonight.
they had a bunch of vets (led by billy williams) do the 7th along with a video edited together of ernie banks + ron santo singing the 7th so they could all sing along. great touch.
