It hasn’t been the greatest series for the Cubs. Adam Warren moves out of the bullpen and gets his first start of the season and for the Cubs despite having a couple wins. He would be going against Anthony DeSclafani.
Adam Warren would perform greatly but be taken out after 5 innings. He would give up only 1 run and it comes in the 1st inning as Zach Cozart would start the game with a lead off home run. He would give up only two more hits that came in the second inning with singles to Brandon Phillips and Jose Peraza. The next 3 innings would be lights out for the Reds.
Addison Russell would start the Cubs scoring off in the 2cd driving in Tommy La Stella on a double. He would score the 2cd run off of Miguel Montero’s single. The 5th inning would see Ben Zobrist smacking his 12th home run of the year.
The Cubs would only see 3 more base runners after the 5th inning but no more runs. Through 5, it would be Cubs 3, Reds 1.
Trevor Cahill would enter the 6th almost striking out the side but walks Joey Votto in between. He would get the first out in the 7th but gives up singles to Brandon Phillips and Jose Peraza who steals 2cd base with Tucker Barnhart at the plate. Tucker launches his 3rd home run for 3 runs putting the Red sup by 1. Cahill gets out of the inning but is pulled in the 8th for Carl Edwards, Jr.
Carl starts the 8th off getting the 1st out but walks Adam Duvall. He gets the 2cd out but gives up a single to Brandon Phillips pushing Duvall up to 3rd. Carl would have the unfortunate luck of throwing a wild pitch scoring Duvall.
There would be no more runs passed this inning and the Cubs would lose the series to the Reds.
Thursday will see the Braves in town for a make up game. Then it’s off to Pittsburgh before the All Star break.
