Game Six: Cubs (4-1) vs. Reds (4-2)
Game Time – 1:20pm C.T. on Comcast SportsNet, WGN Radio, XM Radio Channel 186
Glendon Rusch (0-1, 9.00) vs. Bronson Arroyo (1-0, 4.05)
The first place Chicago Cubs (by percentage points) takes on a very dangerous Cincinnati Reds team today at Wrigley. This is a rematch of the second game of the season, the only one to this point the Cubs have lost. Rusch gave up a home run to Bronson Arroyo as well as walking his mound counterpart back on April 5th.
Rusch has to be sharp today and provide a quality start for the Cubs and allow Dusty to stay out of the bullpen too early. Rusch only threw 4 innings in his first outing and he is the key to the game. The Cubs and Jacque Jones have hit Arroyo well in the past; let’s hope for the same today.
